Some general information from the 2006 KJ Factory Service Manual (FSM):

DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING - TRANSFER CASE - NV242
Transfer case difficult to shift or will not shift into desired range.
POSSIBLE CAUSE - CORRECTION
1) Transfer case shift cable binding. 1) Repair or replace cable as necessary.
2) Insufficient or incorrect lubricant. 2) Drain and refill transfer case with the correct type and quantity of lubricant.
3) Internal transfer case components binding, worn, or damaged. 3) Repair or replace components as necessary.

DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING - TRANSFER CASE - NV231
Transfer case difficult to shift or will not shift into desired range.
POSSIBLE CAUSE - CORRECTION
1) Vehicle speed too great to permit shifting. 1) Slow vehicle and shift into desired range.
2) If vehicle was operated for an extended period in 4H mode on dry surface, driveline torque load may cause difficulty. 2) Stop vehicle and shift transfer case to Neutral position. Transfer case can then be shifted to the desired mode.
3) Transfer case shift cable binding. 3) Repair or replace cable as necessary.
4) Insufficient or incorrect lubricant. 4) Drain and refill transfer case with the correct type and quantity of lubricant.
5) Internal transfer case components binding, worn, or damaged. 5) Repair or replace components as necessary.

thanks for the reply i crawled underneath the jeep and found that the plastic gromit that connects the 4x4 shift handle to the transfer case had broken leaving the transfer case in neutral so i hand shifted it back to the 2wd position and all is working fine have the grommit on order now and will replace it when it arrives... however i still need to figure out what would have caused the grinding/popping noise that was accuring after i shifted out of full-time 4x4 mode back to 2wd sounded like it was coming from around both front tires but it only does it when i disengage the 4x4 and it stops after a little while. any advice on what to check or look for would be greatly appreciated!

Not fully in 2wd.The select trac t-case is a very touchy t-case to shift.

Happened to me just the other day. I had it in Full Time 4WD (I do that about once a month just to keep things lubed up) and when I went to back out of a parking spot after shifting it back to 2WD it was all bound up. Shifted it into Drive and Reverse a couple of times before it dropped back to 2WD.

I know the 242's quirks but it will still get me sometimes...
