Truck wont shift in to park

Hey Guys, Looking for info about adjusting shifter cables. mine has always ha slop in it but bow it has gotten to the point where i cannot **** it into park. I haven't looked under the truck yet because we just a banger snowstorm but if anyone has dealt with this before it would be great.
Thanks
Will

Take the shroud off of your steering column and look at the shifter bushings and make sure the tube isn't cracked. Also look at the bolts where the cable mounts to the bottom of the shifter.

Check on the side of the tranny were the shifter is attached and check for small pebbles between the shift bracket and pan. I had the same problem with mine this last fall.

is it possible to adjust the cable and take slack out of it if that's all it is?

no, if there is slack that means that something is worn and needs to be replaced.
