    You need to adjust your linkage.

    Mine did the same thing. Wouldn't even stay in 4 HI at all until I adjusted the linkage and then it worked.

    what kind of t-case do you have. If it is a 208 then I would agree it is the linkage, I had the same problem with mine. But if its a 205 then its usually the shift rails that get worn out.

    Adjusting the linkage

    Just above your transfer case you should see a shifter arm coming out of the T-case housing. On this arm there is a threaded bolt with a c-clip or some other type op clip holding it in place. Undo all of that linkage so that the t-case is no longer conected to the shifter. Put on your e-brake and then set the shifter to 4HI. Go back under the truck and set the shifter arm to 4HI. (This is one "click" back from all of the way fowards) Reattach the the linkage making sure that the shifter does not move and the linkage arm does not move. That should do it. This is a common problem if you've dropped your t-case due to a lift.
