2000 Dodge Ram 1500 will only go in reverse in 4 low but drives in 4L 4H and 2H

Asked by May 17, 2018 at 11:11 PM about the 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 4 Dr SLT 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 dodge ram 1500 5.9L 4x4. So about a month back i was
having some issues with a clunking noise and couldnt figure it out so i was
checking everything i could think of to find out it was a bad bearing in the
rear end. But in the process i found out that my extension housing on my
transmission was cracked. So i bought a core transmission and took off the
extension housing to swap out... now before the extension housing was
taken off everything worked with no problem, tansmission shifted with no
issues, reverse worked in 4L 4H and 2H... but after i replaced the cracked
extension housing and put everything back together i went to back up and
the truck would roll in reverse and shifts in reverse in 2H and 4H but wont go
up and incline or move when i give it any gas. But if i switch into 4L it will
move when i accelerate backwards. I have had 2 transfer cases and it did
the same with both so its not the transfer case and the transmission was
doing everything with no problems before the extension housing was
changed. Im at loss with where my problem lies because everything inside
the extension housing is good. Any advise?
