Default 1994 f150 shifter froze ideas?

I have a 94 ford and i was loading a 4 wheeler so i backed into a rock hard drift and put the truck in park, and then drove the four wheeler in. When i tried to leave my truck would not shift out of park. It was in two wheel drive whole time. Then i used a bobcat to remove the drift i was backed up to. so there would be no more pressure. still would not shift. Me and my friends pushed the truck back and forth to try to relieve pressure. It didnt. After that i jacked up each rear tire to try to relieve pressure. did not work. the truck is only at a slight rear declining angle. Ideas? Possible problems and price to fix them? Doesnt seem possible that the tranny is blown.

I'd strong-arm it... It will give in or give out... It is doing nothing to help you at this point.
"If you break it... claim it was broken before you really broke it!" ...That's my motto.

The brake lights are out. The truck doesn't shift out of park until you step on the brake, but when the lights are out it thinks you aren't stepping on the brake. You can shift it into neutral if you turn the key forward but not on, then start it and drive away.

I'm pretty sure '94 has that safety option.

Are you kidding me?
Buy this man a beer if that is indeed the issue...
Who woulda thunk it?
