The switch for the Quadratrac that is in the glovebox is just there, nothing is hooked up. I honestly don't know a ton about the Quadratrac system.

This is a good place to start.

.http://jubileejeeps.org/quadratrac/index.htm

The transfer case is the same, be it a truck or a CJ .

You should be able to ID if you have the low range unit on yours , from checking the link out.

So, if in fact you do have a low range unit, I wonder if you may have Inadvertently moved the lever to neutral.
There are 3 positions , low range, neutral, and high range, neutral being in the middle.

Transfer case is in 2H, just to make sure I put the t-case in every position and shifted through the gears. Still nothing. Have some finals today then will be able to drop the pan again. I'm hoping it is just I forgot to put the o-ring on the pickup tube. I'll keep ya posted.

There isn't a "2hi" on a Quadratrac transfer case, its just HI ,LOW , or NEUTRAL. The Q-trac is full time 4wd, unless a mile marker part time kit is installed.

I hope it's just sucking air, getting a TH-400 rebuilt is a hit in anyone's wallet...

Now I'm really confused. The t-case has four gears from dash back. But it has Quadratrac as well, although it's not hooked up to anything. So if it is supposed to only have Hi, Low, and Neutral why would mine have 4 gears? And there is no panel to tell, that was probably gone years ago. Still have yet to get under the thing to see what I fudged up.

While your under the Jeep, take some pictures of the transfer case, and the shift levers inside the tub.

Working on getting the pictures up but here is the filter I installed, and I do have a shallow pan.

Still no chance to get the pan off, between work, finals, and freezing rain no time. Will keep you all posted though.

Alright, I'm back. So I finally took the pan back off. The pickup tube wasn't all the way in the trans and there was no o-ring on the tube. I instaled a new o-ring and seated it all the way in the transmission and installed the filter and pan. Started it up and put it in gear and nothing. Put it in reverse and it moved about a foot, put it back in drive and with some revs it moved forward a little then stopped. I'm officially lost. Any ideas?

Is the motor running, and in neutral when you check the fluid level?
Is the vehicle on level ground when checking the fluid level?

Do this, and listen to Bill. I know where he is leading, and if he is correct, you may be doing damage to your transfer case.

Do you by chance have locking hubs on the front axle?

The transmission should be in park when checking fluid level.
What's the fluid level at?
Your description sounds like low fluid.
