86 FJ60 manual 4sp

I posted a bit earlier about 1st gear popping out on down hills. I replaced the tranny mount, still does it.

But, bigger issue now is the t-case. going up or down steep hills, in 4 lo, the front shaft will disengage. The shifter will pop it out. I have to shove the lever downwards, towards me, to re-engage the front shaft.

Anybody have any idea what's going on here? Losing the front drive climbing a steep hill is not fun.

Does this sound like an adjustment, or something going on inside?
check the rubber boot under you shifter, is it worn or hard, there should be no "slop" in the linkage to your transfer case, make sure the rubber boot or the top boot is not bunching up and popping it out of gear.
