Will do. That sound like a probable cause.If the cable is binding a little it may be wise to loosen the clip, go under the Jeep and make sure to pull it all the way closed.
After you get it set up, go under the Jeep and open and close the transmission side valve by hand. That's how I diagnosed my hard shifting. The cable had too much friction and was causing the valve to close slowly/stay slightly open.
I’ll also take it loose at both ends and make sure it’s no bound.
