hi mitch, not sure this will help, but i just bought a 99 tracker and as my roommate and i were cleaning it up (parked), we ended up engaging the 4wd (which we know nothing about). we somehow got it locked up and the vehicle wouldn't move! we got the transfer case to N, but still no movement. when i tried to go from N to 2L, it would make a grinding noise, so i automatically stopped! after reading the manual/label near the trans case, we found that by putting the gear shift in neutral and then the transfer case in 2L, it disengaged and allowed movement again. now, it did make a grinding noise as i shifted the trans case, but apparently that was just the gears disengaging (or engaging??). all seems to be fine now.('cept i'm tempted to put a cage over the trans case so it will be permanently set in 2L!!!)(kidding!)
