T-Case issue?

Hey guys, I'm having T-case issues. (42re with 249)

In 4 High it (the tcase?) grinds in park, reverse, drive, etc. and the jeep will not move when I give it gas. The grinding goes away when I put the tcase into 4low and the jeep will move again. Besides checking the linkage, is there anything else that it could be?

Either the linkage is way out of adjustment or you've cooked the range fork inside the case.

I would try disconnecting the linkage from the case and shifting it directly from the shift tab, if that doesn't get you driving then you'll need to drop the case.

I pulled out the tcase. Tore it apart. Fork was trashed. Decided it was time to swap in a 242... I'm half way there anyway! Picked up a 242 in amazing condition for only $200! + ($50 core) Just need to get the correct input shaft, the one in the 249 has the early gear cut so it wont fit in the 242 properly. Luckily the place I got the tcase (FNJEEP... literally the best place I know to get used jeep parts for cheap) should have one I'll jsut trade them the one out of the 242
