NP231 shift positions?


New member
I feel like a moron, as I've done this before, but my aging brain has forgotten how the shift tab on the NP231 is pointing in 2HI. I tried Googling it...but it's not there (that I can find) or a picture would be nice in all 4 positions.


P.S. I know I should get an aftermarket shifter, but I need to start at square one before I go anywhere. AND it's not in the budget.

Sorry, I know what it's supposed to look like inside the cab and I have 2 or 3 bezels. The link is on the right track, but I think it's backwards. I've looked at several links in the search and they all say something different and advocate for a new shifter, simple question though. Which end is 2HI (under the truck).

Moving the transfer case external shift lever tab Forward/Up is 2wd.

It's the same in the vehicle as it is under the jeep. All the way forward 2H (shift arm on the transfer case pointed all the way toward the front of the jeep). Shift arm pointed toward the back of the jeep is 4L = shift lever inside pulled all the way toward the back of the Jeep)
