2008 jeep: backing..the tires were slipping..4WD.

Customer Question
My brother's 2008 jeep will...
My brother's 2008 jeep will not go into gear. We were backing up a really steep hill and the tires were slipping. I told my brother to put it in 4WD. The stick was hard to move but he got it in gear. When we reached the top and he tried to put it back in 2WD the stick was really loose. Now the jeep will not even go in the drive or reverse. When you put it in park it makes a grinding sound. What in the world is wrong with the jeep?

the transfer case is stuck in neutral and it sounds like the cable that operates the transfer case has either popped off or has broken
