    Anyone ever experience the shifter getting stock, or hard to move from drive to reverse or park while plowing

    WHAT YEARS AND MODEL?

    Well shifter cable must got rusty under transmission. You need spray pb blaster or fluid film to soak that.

    check two torx bolts under dash above steering column. they like to come loose, they hold the other end of the cable. It usually causes a sloppy shift but might cause a bind as well/
