Define won't go into gear. Do you mean it won't move when you put it in gear? Will it roll in neutral. If you heard a noise and saw smoke coming from your rear area of the jeep you may have burnt up a bearing in the axle. If it will roll and the motor free spin when giving it gas in neutral or park then you have a trans or t-case issue.. Maybe you accidentally knocked the t-case when stopping to look at the smoke? More of a description would help a lot.

Sounds like transmission problems but I'm confused about your setup. So you got rid of the quadratrac? What driveline do you have now?

Have you checked your fluid level? When you putit in gear does it feel like its going into gear? Does the RPM's change at all? Sounds to me like you had a failure in your trans.. You say you swapped a straight through drive line so im assuming its a 400 with the dana 20 or 727 with a dana 300.. Since they are both gear driven boxes I would think that you would have not gotten ans smoke if they burned up. I would suspect alot of grinding.. you may have burned up your clutches in the trans or has the Torque converter go out. Did it feel like it was slipping prior to pulling over?
