Took my wagon out for another test drive.. First off I almost rolled it on a off camber hill with a 2 foot straight drop off the top. Got out of that, turned around and took the hill upwards.. bout half way up the car stopped.. lil grinding. sounded like the exhaust ripped off and was dragging. Stopped me dead.. Couldnt shift at all.. Shut the car down and restarted it and everything was fine..

Trying to figure out what the hell happened? Any Ideas?

yeah I think it was the plastic trim. It rubs ont eh plastic in 1 3 and 5 so I think thats what happened.. hit a bump and everything moved, plastic knocked the shifter back and the t-case in neutral at the same time locking the whole thing up.

Put 125 miles on today, tighten'd bolts up. Everything seems good. Nice sitting as high as a chevy pickup
