The tailshaft will also have to be changed on the transmission as it is set up for a transfer case and not a driveline. This change requires a lot of modification. Your transmission mounts to the vehicle using the transfer case and there are no mounts on the transmission itself. It would be MUCH easier to just head to the salvage yard and find another transfer case. Most people do not have the resources, machinery, or tools neceassary to build what would be needed to customize a grand cherokee for 2 wheel drive

Take the tansfer case out take the driveline off the front and get a new driveline going to the rear because without transfer case you rear driveline wont be long enough to reach the rear diff, about 8 hours work and $600.00 ruff est, that is only if the transmission is still good

I have a 93 jeep Cherokee, it will move in 4wh and in 4wl but will not go back into 2wd?


Hello guy
try posting what 4wd system you have,? first.
command trac or select track, (the latter is full time)
part time or the full time system,
we cant guess it....
read the operators guide first, if a part time system only
as i suspect, stop driving on dry pavement.
it's only for ice, or dirt. part time. part time is not a full time system.
Command-Trac
shifting to 4wd on dry (means no ice) pavement causes, drive line wind up! and the gears to lockup. (see steering get tight in turns?> and is dangerous to drive it like this , you, me and the box)
posted here 100s of times.

http://www.rubicon-trail.com/4WD101/driveline-bind.html


the non grand Cherokee. early

had these choices
  • 1987-2001: New Process NP231 Command-Trac, part-time only, 2.72:1 ratio with low range
NP231 has the following settings: 2HI, 4HI, N, 4LO
  • 1987-2001: New Process NP242 Selec-Trac, full-time or part-time, 2.72:1 ratio with low range
NP242 has the following settings: 2HI, 4 full-time, 4 part-time, N, 4LO


as you can see you need to first know, what NP box you have or
photo your shift lever for 4wd, an post it and we tell you.

more facts, on select trac. (totally unlike command trac)
Selec-Trac locking hub is used on 4WD Cherokee. Selec-Trac
utilizes a non-disconnect front axle. Engagement of 2WD or 4WD is
accomplished at transfer case by means of mechanical shift linkage.
System allows full or part time 4WD. Selec-Trac can be shifted into
2WD or 4WD modes from inside the vehicle at any speed.
unquote
next from the service manual,
4WD TO 2WD
1) Place mode select switch in 2WD position. Transfer case
should shift to 2WD and not allow shifting into 4WD or LO range. Axle
should shift after transfer case shifts.
2) To determine if front axle has completed a shift out of
4WD into 2WD, position mode select switch back to 4WD position while
operating vehicle at slow speed. If vehicle shifts into 2WD, axle will
ratchet. If shift is not completed, transfer case will shift into 4WD
and hissing sound will come from mode select switch.
end quote.

if unsure read the FSM book its free.
shows you both systems and how to diagnose it.

in the box, click Cherokee,,then click 1993, and behold.
the real deal.

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 292000 miles. Runs but will not drive in any gear. Selector will go into hear but it wont move. It can be pushed while in neutral. Was told transfer case was bad but even...


Could be either, a transmission problem or transfer case problem.
Someone will probably have to remove the transfer case to find out.
The torque converter, pump, valve body, or various parts in the transmission could have failed. The transfer case could be stuck between 2wd and 4wd or could have a broken gear.

Can i change from a 4 wheel transmission to a 2 wheel transmission


without changing transfer case it is not possible.* (normal circumstances)

what you need is NP242 or NP231 selectrac /command trac transfer cases from 4.0 G.cherokee or Cherokee. those allows you to select 2wd for all time driving and let you decide on mode when 4wd is needed.

also you can test to see how it feels by removing front shaft for trial purposes but you will be loosing power because all time transfer case distributes the traction over front and rear.( do not try this when driving in traffic)

*I also heard that it is possible to convert all time mode to all time 2wd but keeping 4wd low intact.( i wonder how realiable the result is though)

Transfer case


On the back of the case you should see a round tag. The numbers you are looking for are right on there.

42re>>aw4 swap


Far s I know it fits...make sure you have the correct torque converter for the unit you want to install. Only thing I'm not positive of is if the transfer case fits but pretty sure it does.Upi may need to change some linkage too. I have a AW4 in my 93 and I know there isn't a different engine configuration.

My 93 jeep grand cherokee service 4wd switch is on. what does this mean ?


Hey there, The driver info center in the 93 grand cherokee's is notorious for this message. This switch is on the transfer case and its only purpose is to tell that display what 4 wheel drive mode you are in (eg. 2 wheel, 4 wheel high, 4 wheel low, etc.) This can mean the switch bad but is USUALLY cause by a short in the display module itself. This will not affect anything on your Jeep. It is merely for driver information only. This is a very common problem and if you have a 93 in which the display is working at all your are lucky. They are very bad about going completely out over time.

I am having several problems with my 93 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4 wheel all the time. First, every time I drive, it seems like it slips out of 4 wheel drive high into neutral, then we have to come to a stop...


On your first problem, I would say the transfer case is gonna need some work if not totally rebuilt. You may try checking the fluid in the transfer case to start with. If it is low, the transfer case could be overheating and causing it to jump out of gear. I would say the damage is already done though. On your second problem, check the sensor in your washer fluid resevior, it has probably gone bad. As for the display not working all the time it is probably going out. The driver information display on the grand cherokees is notoriuos for going bad as they age. After 16 years it is probably going to need to be replaced and they are not cheap. Try a salvage or junk yard first. I also have a 93 Grand Cherokee and I have had to replace the instrument cluster. My speedometer stopped working and then the cluster began blowing the fuse over and over. I went to a salvage yard and found one for 25 bucks. Unfortunately, there are no easy solutions to the problems your are having. Good luck to ya. Hopefully you get everything situated. Jeeps are great vehicles to own and they will stand the test of time with the proper maintenance and and a little TLC.
