Crawl under the center portion of your jeep while someone inside shifts the transcase lever. It's not uncommon for the linkage to get loose. From underneath you'll be able to see if so.

Have you looked underneath the Jeep to see what broke?

Have you still been driving around stuck in 4wd, or did you get that problem fixed ?

If you continued to drive stuck in 4wd on hard surfaces, you very possibliby have destroyed the t-case.

Making turns on hard surfaces creats a lot of stress and binding on the drive line.

Just thinking out loud here, but I would think if something were to let go from excessive driving in 4wd on pavement it would be a driveshaft u-joint or maybe the chain. In any case, it'd seem odd to me to lose both the front and rear drive at the same time. Based on the information it's been driven for a few days in 4wd on pavement, I'm now wondering if maybe the t-case has popped into neutral.

Kind of a shame we have to have this discussion when it only takes ten minutes tops to adjust the shift linkage by yourself.

half thinking but do jeeps have that issue when in 4wd on pavement ?? i have driven my old chevy alot that way and my front and rear diff ratios are actually different in those years and had no issues. But yes being stuck in 4wd with an unknown reason means you should not have driven on it other than to get home and it sounds like what mukluk said and its in neutral now but if it went there with a big bang it may have been forced there and broke stuff along the way. and even a broken chain would only take out the front axle in most cases, if the t case is not in 2 pieces only way to find out is the drop the case and see what the insides are like

agreed. My experience is that problems rarely fixed themselves. They either stay the them or get worse.
