4x4 trouble

I've noticed that with my t5 tranny and transfer case that I can only get it into 2wd and 4 low. is there some way to adjust the linkage or how would I be able to get 4 high?

Linkage is not adjustable but I would look under there while someone worked the level to see if anything was binding. There are two rails, one for the front axle and one for the rear. Don't quote me, I could be backwards, but I think for 4lo, both shafts are pushed in the case, pull one spot back for neutral, pull one more spot and only the rear axle rail moves for 2hi, one more spot the font axle rail moves giving you 4hi. Probably some obstruction or wear in the linkage to keep that front axle rail from engaging in high range.

It's just a Jeep, and if you don't wheel it once in a while, it's not even that.
