    Welcome @Mmol ...might want to inspect the plastic bushing connecting the shifter cable to the lever on the side of the T/C under the jeep. A similar plastic bushing connects the shifter to the cable under the console. Your Jeep should still be under warranty. The Jeep is not designed to run on 4WD on dry roads.
