Ignition key and shifter issues

Jeep Information

I replaced the trans on an ‘04 Laredo recently. The protective sleeve that covers the shifter linkage at the trans/under the vehicle is eaten up somewhat. I have been able to shift the vehicle in order of prnd21 but not the other direction. There is no response at the shifter in the direction of 12dnrp and I have to shift it manually under the vehicle to get it back into Park. I recently took it for a drive and the vehicle felt like it had a lot of resistance in drive, almost as if the brakes were stuck. I parked it back into my spot and placed the shifter into park under the vehicle manually as someone else held the brake. Once in park and the ignition turned off I was suddenly unable to remove the key from the ignition. I then tried messing with the shifter in the vehicle, and messing with the shifter at the trans itself but the key will not remove still. Any ideas?
