What did I do to my trans?

2005 tj, automatic 4.0......I jacked up my front right tire from rocker guard. Having a couple of people talking to me I was going to put the jeep into 4wd to keep axle from turning while taking lug nuts off and for whatever reason I cut the key on and put the trans into drive. Well I continued to jackup each corner after getting done and all 4 tires were on the ground I noticed that the left side of jeep was sitting 1 1/2" higher than the right. Went to drive it and it wont engage. Something seems bound up. I went back and jacked up each side and tried shifting but got nothing. Any ideas?

I am not quite understanding? You cut the key on??

I think you might have screwed something up in the differential, maybe with the axel. I would take the cover off to inspect.

Going forward its best to loosen the lugs when the tires are on the ground.

I had the tire off already, I was putting wheel spacers on. I turned the key on so I could move the trans out off park..stupid I know but like I said couple of people talking and had a brain fart there was ability no need for me to take it out of park. Now when I turn the jeep on and shift into driveI can just shift the selector up and down with no resistance and its not trying to engage at al l

Well it sounds like the cable is screwed up. There's a cable that runs from the shifter to the tranny. Check it out - look where it hooks to the tranny while somebody shifts it and see if it moves. There's a white bushing on there that breaks.
