Hi my name is***** will be glad to try to help. Its likely that the linkage got bent or possibly damaged. First try jacking the cab back up and inspecting the linkage thoroughly. If the linkage checks okay the problem is in the transmission shift rails. Try disconnecting the shifter and manually resetting to neutral. Let me know
