no there isn't anything wrong with your linkage. Get back and the Durango and rock it back and forth a little. Get back in side and try to move the shift lever again. You might have to put a little behind it. When it does shift, you may he a clunk, don't worry. When you parked, it was probably on some sort of incline. You Durango settled against itself and the lever/gears are bound up slightly.

or it's the shift interlock solenoid that's controlled by the brake pedal

My neighbor had a 97ish voyager, we went together to a computer store because she didn't have a clue about pc's and didn't want to get ripped off. I offered to go if she paid me $4200. Kidding. We come out of the store to discover her car 7 rows back from where we got out. It was stopped by a nice thick row of bushes. Her daughter decided to sit in the driver's seat and grabbed the shift lever to get herself into the front seat and off they went. My daughter was next to her in the pass seat, luckily no one was hurt. Of course the engine was left running, I asked her "how stupid can you be?", her response was she wanted to leave the radio on for them. DUH!

Or 1999, mine does not have one either. That is ok, I have always made it a rule to place my foot on the brake when I shift out of park. Kinda common sense.

Might be wrong but there was another term for that...I believe it was called torque-locking the transmission.
