Default Transfer Box Issue

Hey, well when it rains it pours.
Just missed a rear ending from a prime mover today, he tagged the back end of me but no damage asides from me looking like a ghost from shock!

I challange anyone to look cool, when a fully laiden Kenworth gives them a love tap!!

Anyhow -

I pulled over to check the ute out and realised I was into some seriously boggy dirt, popped her into 4wd and pushed off, then cruised down the road a bit, stopped and tried to return her into 2wd H - No deal.. Stick was stiff as!!
No smooth movement at all, and very very stiff..
In the end she locked up and wouldnt budge, leaving me in 4wd neutral and no way of driving..!!!

Augh!
So had to get it towed down to a friends place and there she stays?

Buggered Transfer box????

Cheers

It may be as simple as a worn out shifter sheet (shifter bushing). the stock bushing will self destruct after awhile. Just remove the shiter knob, interior boot and t-case boot. Then use a pair of long handled screwdrivers to push and twist the shifter spring retainer. Pull the shifter straiht out and look down. You will probably see remnants of the old bushing. You will have to replace it, but to get you down the road you need to use a long handled screwdriver and line up the shifter forks so that the open notches line up. Here is where you replace the bushing. then drop the shifter back into place and replace the retainer. It should shift now. Then put the extras back together. you can get a factory replacement from Suzuki (or many of the vendors) or you can get the aftermarket poly bushing (same vendors). there is a company here in the States that makes a brass replacement that has a 15 yer warranty. Pretty slick if you ask me. That vendor would be ZOR Zuks Off Road .
