I have a friend who has a 1992 Jeep 4cycl 5 spd, 4x4. I think it has around 175,0000 miles on it. The transmission has been rebuilt once. The jeep has never been used off road, was a daily driver. Last Spring they parked it. Basically it sat for all most a year. A few weeks ago they went out to move it. It started up find put it in gear, it wouldn’t move. So the dad decides help it along a he tried to pull it forward a little to get it to move…… The whole transmission just dropped it’s lying on the ground. My question is, 1 - why wouldn’t the jeep move, 2- why would the transmission let go and fall out. . Everything was working before they parked it. Do you think it’s a fairly easy fix, I realize that’s a hard call not actually seeing the jeep. Any help would be appreciated.
Sounds like the skid plate bolts rotted out of the frame or rather the frame rotted around the bolts. Anyway the Jeep may not have moved it the transfercase was in neutral or the clutch took a dump.
05' Grand Cherokee Limited, 2"OME lift
Electric Chair Operator
Ebrake not released
If it's an auto - low/no fluid
If manual tranny - clutch mechanizm bad
Drive shaft missing/stolen
Wrong shift position
Rusted thru due to extremely poor maintenance
With what appears to be a major lack of maintenance - doubtfull.

I’m like you; I can’t picture it in my mind. And I don’t understand why it would just fall off either. I asked them to send me some pictures, next weekend I’m going over to see for my self. I just don’t get it (I live an hour away) If the transmission did in fact pull apart I would think the bolts would be still connected or broken or striped.. It would be hard for someone to try to steal anything the jeep sits behind the house only one way in and one way out.
Anyway thanks for all the ideas,
