Yes the shift fork in the picture is correct. I would suspect the trowout bearing is getting seized to the quil. Sounds like its time to drop the trans again. I work at a transmission shop and luckily removing an ax15 out of a wrangler is a day at the beach compared to most other vehicles. Nebraska

Also when you fist installed it, did you put grease in the pilot bushing? If so . Oil lite bushings do not like grease. It makes them guald up and seize to the input shaft causing similar symptoms.

where in NE are you?
seized to the quil? what does that mean?
everything was new a month ago.
i was reading this article: 1997 Jeep TJ Clutch Replacement
and i didnt lube the ball and socket or the sleeve of the input shaft like it says. would that be THAT big of a deal that would make my TO bearing toast in a month? i assumed that the TO bearing was prelubed to begin with.

Im in Norfolk. The quil is what the TO bearing slides on, it also serves as the bearing retainer. You are correct, the TO bearing should come prelubed. And no not lubing the ball and sockets shouldn't cause that problem. In my opinion the "sleeve" (quill) that the TO bearing slides on should be VERY LIGHTLY lubed. Did you lube the pilot bushing that is in the crank on the engine?
