I took the engine,trans,transfer case & front end from a 1996 cherokee sport and installed it on my 1995 grand cherokee 2wd. It appears that 4 electrical connectors to the trans/transfer case Don't match up.
Lights work,however, ignition is not working. I was able to start the vehicle by crossing the silinoid. Engine runs great. I took my intake manifold and fuel rail so was hoping that we wouldn't have a ignition problem.

This is because the 1500 series is considered light duty regardless of whether it is 2x4 or 4x4. When you add the large mud tires and wheels to the vehicle, that alone stresses the hubs and transfer cases. Add in the overevvving and sudden start-stop jolts of mudding, and you have all the making of drive train failure. If you want to play big boy games, get big boy equipment.
Use white paint, chalk or a scribe to mark the relationship of the front U joint to the front diferential pinion yoke. Mark the relationship of the rear U joint flange to the transfer case companion flange. Unbolt the front end of the drive shaft from the pinion yoke and the rear end from the transfer case companion flange and remove the drive shaft from the vehicle.
hope thei info helps.
It should be going to the nearest vacuum source. If it has come loose, look for the end of the hose. Once you have located the end, look in that general area, you should see a male end where that end of the hose can be reconnected.
The mode fork inside the transfer case has a weak or broken spring. This is allowing the fork to engage the mainshaft, causing it to place it in 4x4 drive. To repair this the transfer case will need to be replaced. To solve this issue temperarly, you can remove the front drive shaft to keep it from locking the front wheels, but you most likely will hear a grinding noise from time to time while driving, and would still need to address the mode fork issue.
I'm betting you will be running into a problem I am dealing with shortly. I would advise you to check your front axles possibly the transfer case as well, luckily you can drive straight in the 4x4 mode, mine grinds as soon as i move the lever, it might not be the wheel bearings, however it could be the CV joints, and if that is the case you may want to look into swapping your axles out. I'm not a professional Jeep guy but mine has had almost every problem it can have, just some advice, hope it helps.
This is normal but there should be a small plastic valve at the end of hose to keep out foreign debris this, is a ventilation hose to vent the case when submerged in water there should be one on the rear diff transfer case and trans as well, these can be extended higher in vehicle if you want to go thru deeper water. most 4x4 have these
