ON the back side of the T-case, there will be a round tag with the identification info for your transfer case. Need to know which one it is. There were a couple different options...... (NV231, 242, etc.)

Here is a picture of the shift lever. Upon further checking it appears that this Durango came equipped with "Full Time 4wd" (per the tag in the glove box) I will be crawling back under the truck in a few minutes to check the tag on the transfer case. Per Dodge (yeah I know on a 17 yr old vehicle you cannot go by what the vin number said) it should have a 242 transfer case. I will update this when I figure out what the exact case it. Thanks again. (As a disclaimer, I have no clue what the wires are that are in the picture, but I intend to find out )

According to the shifter, your Durango is kinda/sorta all wheel drive. The "4wd" selection is for normal driving, and all four wheels get power, with differentiation in the t-case between front and rear drivelines. (for turning corners and such on high traction surfaces.) 4hi lock is "real" four wheel drive, for use ONLY in low traction conditions. (deep snow, mud, or off-roading.) 4 Lo lock is low range 4 wheel drive. (no differentiation in t-case, front and rear are locked together.) For use in truly knarly terrain, or, to pull your boat up that REALLY steep ramp.

Definately a 242 t-case. So, with the 4wd it would act like my '01 and awd? For snow, the 4wd lock is ok for on road driving? I suppose that i could assume that the t-case is in 4wd so i can reinstall the shift linkage where it is and i should be able to get full range of motion...ot is it suggested to find 4lo and go from there?
Thanks again for the help.

I would stay out of 4 lock, unless the roads were completely covered in snow. The 4wd selection should prove perfectly well for most any on-road driving conditions, unless, of course, you get stuck.... the Hi lock.

As an update, I got the linkage sorted out thanks for all the help. Oh, and before I forget, the rubber bushing for the linkage can be obtained at O'Riley's Auto parts for about $10...as compared to the stealership where one was $19...If I can find the part number from O'Riley's I will post it...it was simply hanging on the blister pack isle with all the generic parts.

Thanks again for the help...one step closer to getting Red on the road again!

Thanks in advance
