The 4WD shifter knob on the 2007 JK's is ridiculously hard to remove. Pull straight-up with all your might, then after that fails, get some towels, and a chunk of would with a long pry bar. Hopefully you won't crack your center console.

My shifter quit working

On a console shift auto, you need to remove the shifter handle by pulling out the clip on the side of the the T shifter with a needle nose pliers.. Pull handle up. There is a plastic bead strip with 3 or 4 balls on it. The clip needs to be re-installed so that the clip holds the strip in place. If this does not work the strip needs to be replaced.

The front of the handle has a large "U" clip. Use a screw drive and pry the clip out. It's a lot easier to do when the shifter is pulled all the way back to "1" or "2" but is doable in park still. The handle will then pull up. There will be a plastic piece in it that pushes down to release the lock in the shifter assembly. If when you push the plastic piece down it doesn't release the lock you will have to remove the shifter cover and take a look inside, to see what broke. It may require replacing the whole shifter assembly. You should be able to find the complete assembly used for fairly cheap.

To remove the shifter handle you have to give the handle a good pull upwards. To put it back, give it a good smack down. The handle just snaps in place.

First thing just try to push or pull the 4x4 lever if you get it to move and it feels like it went into some gear try to drive the truck.If this works look on the shifter for the 4x4 and put it in 2 wheel drive (H2 is two wheel drive,H4 is 4x4 high,and L4 is 4x4 low range).Make sure you have the clutch depresed when you try to move the 4x4 lever.If you try this stuff with no fix try and look for clutch adjustment on the transmision you may need to adjust it or your clutch is bad.
