Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Verify you have good air pressure and the regulator/filter on the back of the transmission is not plugged. try shifting with the lines disconnected using a rubber tipped blow gun to see if it will fully engage low and high range. If so correct the air pressure problem. If not the problem is likely mechanical. Drain and look for metal/debris in the transmission. If found, remove and overhaul or replace. Let me know
