Blow up my 46re!?!?!?

Ok, I'm right on the edge of unloading a full clip into this rebuilt tranny and walking away. This has been a nightmare that I can't wake up from. Started when my coolant lines were riding on a crossmember and rubbed a hole into one...leaked out the fluid and cooked the tranny. So not knowing anything about tranny's I pulled it out sent it to be rebuilt then put it back in. I flushed everything first but it didn't dawn on me to replace the torque converter so upon driving I discovered it wouldn't shift properly. So once again I pulled the tranny flushed it again and replaced the torque converter...this time I never even made it out of the driveway. It seems some freak occurance happened with the converter that tore up the front pump. So I ordered a new pump, pulled the tranny, flushed the tranny and installed the pump and once again didn't make it out of the driveway...it seems the pump was missing parts that I didn't notice. So yet again I pulled the tranny, repaired the pump and reinstalled. Then the friggin thing won't start...seems I bumped the crank position sensor this time, so I bought a new cps, installed it and the motor started. Success right...wrong! Now for some crazy reason the tranny won't come out of park! The shifter on the column moves as it should, the cable moves as it should, I pulled the pan and the park rod moves as it should. Even with the motor turned off the vehicle will not roll if you push it while the shifter is in neutral or any other position. I've called 4 tranny shops and none can answer this problem, Ive reached out to everyone I know and they know and none can answer this problem...please tell me that one of you at least has a direction to point me in.

I just entered the same situation except I had read enough about our ****ty transmission to not spend a dime on it. I lost all my gears over 2nd so I took it to a shop to make sure it wasn't a solenoid. It wasn't electrical. I would suggest a totally different transmission. I know a lot of people swap in an aw4. I hate jeep crap so I am going to use a gm product. The only problem with that is the adapter plate for a 4l60 to a 4.0 is about 600 bucks. I can buy a 4.3 engine with tranny and transfer case for that. 4.3 is more dependable in my book. I still haven't decided if I will go that route or 5.3 yet but I will not have another jeep tranny in that thing. I think you can get a decent manual tranny for that thing.

The 46re is found behind dodge Rams and vans with the 5.9 as well as the grand Cherokee niner.
It would be helpful to know what he has so he can be helped better.

The aw4 isn't a viable swap behind the dodge v8s.

It sounds like the park pawl is stuck, it could be the rod that operates the pawl is not moving even though the shift rod is moving. Remove the pan and check that the pawl rod is working.
