I have a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 with full time 4X4. I have been told the tranny is bad but they did not pull it out. It does have a burned smell and dark color. It will barely roll in 4 wheel high, but seems to roll better in 4 wheel low. Could this possibly be a transfer case problem and not a transmission problem?

They don't have to remove the transmission to check on the condition of the fluid. The shop probably dropped the lower pan to expose the valve body and bands. If it smelled burnt and dark in color, you most certainly will need a new trans. Your transfer case might also need to be rebuilt or replaced since that fluid was probably never changed either. Good Luck.
