Hi guys its been a while since ive been on here... Like the title reads I am having issues w the gears in my 94 yj. last year I was involved in a front end collision mostly on driver side have a bit of front end damage that's another thread but for now I cant shift into 5th gear or reverse the shifter wont even go into either of those gears its like the shifter hit a brick wall I don't know where to start any thoughts..

Was your hand on the shifter on impact? If so maybe something was bent from the natural reaction to brace yourself.

Maybe you broke the collar on 5th gear and it's sitting it a place it shouldn't be sitting? My 5th went out on the hwy and would make a slapping noise if I ever shifted into it after that. When I tried it in the parking lot of the shop I took it to before handing over the keys I couldn't even get it into 5th.
