You can not and should not even consider using it with
any type of trans issue

You need it diagnosed at a trans repair shop

I would say you have about an 80% chance
you will need to rebuild the trans,especially if it
is from 1996,just put it,it is done,worn out

Retrieve transmission faulty code first and check the transmission oil level.
Every time you turn off the ignition key the PCM act like that
The PCM will see the problems every time it happens and only in the same ignition key cycle.

Car was driving normal and while in drive acted like it went into nutral. Now it will not move forward or backwards and just revs in drive and reverse. No pre indication of any issues from a noise...

Check the fluid level. Is it overfull. Shut it off and let it sit for 10 minutes. If it still won't move it likely has a bad torque converter. This model is common for the pump shaft splines in the converter striping out.

Your tranny rods are wrong. I normally leave things loose put the shifter in park, put the tranny in park and then adjust all parts and snug down. The next time you find that problem block the front wheels and jack the rear up to take the pressure off the right tire and it should come right out of park, this is the best reason to set the "E" brake.

The jeep always acts like its in gear it will move forward in nutral and will not go in reverse

They locking nut has come loose on the shift control arm on the side of the transmission, you need to put it in park and adjust it so the arm is all the way forward and the shift lever is all the way into the Park position, this should get rid of the car moving when the shifter lever is not in reverse.
