A couple trucks and I decided to take a short night time run and my trans-case started acting weird. After I locked in the hubs, put 'er in 4-lo, and climbed the entry hill to our newly found spot, it wouldnt go back into 2wd:banghead. I've had the truck since it was new so I know how to shift the t-case. After the climb, I stopped, put the (E4OD) in neutral, and tried to shift the (BW1356) into 2wd but it wouldn't go any further forward than 4hi. I hoped it was solid enough to get me through the trip as it held 4hi and 4lo just fine (shifting between them, I didn't have to push down on the shifter, like I usually do). When I got back to pavement, same story. I unlocked the hubs and drove a couple of miles and tried to shift into 2hi at about 35mph and everything worked as it should. Problem fixed? What happened?

Is it electric shift or manual? If its electric it kind of sounds like the gear motor is acting up. Mine did the same thing, theres a write-up on here somewhere about how to pull it apart and fix a little plastic gear in it using ruber hose. It took me about 10 minutes and havn't had any problems.

my 208 use to do that sometimes. I would just unlock the hubs, drive in reverse a few feet and put it in N, then shift it.

It's manual shift. Crawling under there today after the car wash to take a look at the linkage.
