Ever fixed your Jeep by accident?!

For the last 3+ years, I've been fighting with my tranny linkage on the ZJ. In order for it to go into gear, I'd would have to shift into 2nd for it to into drive, then up into drive.  Got soo bad these last two weeks, would have to shift it into low then back up to drive!  Got the ZJ up on the ramps, figured I'd get tranny link off.... at least see what is worn.  As luck would have, the ratchet was switched to the "on" side.  I'm guessing you know the story.... that bolt which secures the linkage to the tranny had backed off.  Finished tightening the bolt... Perfect!
If you can't fix it with what you have, get a bigger hammer!
