Usualy you will only have two tires spin at a time even in 4 lo or 4high. those tires are going to be diaginal from each other tipicly. now since your vehcle is equiped with quad drive it may employ a limited slip rear differential to help it along. however this only afects the rear axle. now you can test it by jacking your vehicle up and setting it on jack stands. one for each wheel onder the axle tube on a good solid (concreat or black top) flat surface. then have some one you know and trust to get in the car and put it into drive . now you can actualy see what wheels are spinning or not.now is were the limited slip comes in if you have one rear wheel spinning and the other is sitting still the limited slip will engage and start the other wheel spinning . now this may bang until the other wheel catches up (note that the faster the wheel is spinning the harder it is on your truck)now be very carfull stay away from the wheels tires and all other spinning parts it is a machine it can hurt you badly. but give it a try and it will answer your question. be safe hope this helps

    make sure that you have the tires of your vehicle at least 4-5 inches off the ground and slow and stop the tires before you put it back in park

How can i use the 4 x 4 in my 2000 grand cherokee laredo (6 cyl) i dont have the owners manual and i dont know how to use my 4x4 on snow or something like that


With the Jeep in park, move the left shifter to 4 wheel drive. Proceed to put right shifter into drive, proceed to drive. Only use 4wheel drive when neccessary...ie...snow, mud, use 4 wheel lo in steep incline or when really bogged down.

Hope this helps

Specs on 2002 jeep grand cherokee alloy wheels R16


the tires & rims that come with your vehicle are designed to meet all the specs of your vehicle. When you change sizes and styles, you then need to get the computer re programmed with the tire changes you have made. It affects your speedometer, your transfer case, your fuel (mpg) and the performance of the engine to the wheals. Also you can damage your transmission and rear end. So my advise is to buy a high end tire that meets origional specs. Look at the Toyo's they are great tires, great performance and no alterations are needed. Pluss they look cool as hell so try that

check this site out and call them, they have better deals on the phone and have fricking great prices on tires.

Let me know how it goes.

I need to find out if I need to activate the 4 wheel drive for snow driving on the freeway. I have a 1986 Grand Cherokee. V8 5.2, with abs. There is a lever for lo/hi but I think that is used only for...


That is up to your preference in my opinion. 4 wheel may give you a little more traction, but it can also lead you into a false sense of security. If heavy snow, and you need to get through it, you can only go as fast as the guy ahead of you anyway right? Up here in Ontario Canada, I passed by many a 4 wheel drive in the ditch, because they assumed they would have a better chance on icy roads than me, with 2 wheel drive. Remember this, no matter what you decide, you may be able to go a little faster in 4 wheel, compared to 2 wheel, but when you have to hit the brakes, or go into a spin, 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive, your not going to be able to stop it any faster. Your going to use more gas in 4 wheel too. Yes there will be times when you need to use it, but like I said, when it goes sideways or you have to lock up the brakes, because you were pushing the envelope too much,? At least with 2 wheel, you feel the back end break loose, to warn you how slippery it is, and you may not feel that soon enough, with 4 wheel. Just my opinion, but maybe some 4 wheelers have a different opinion. It's just like the experts from the skid school said up here about mandatory snow tires being talked about. If putting snow tires on your car is going to make you drive a little faster, your defeating the purpose.

Jeep Quadratrack does not shift into 4 wheel drive


the quad trac is an alltime 4wheel drive system. it does have a control module that helps transfer the power from front to rear. if it is a 2008 it should be under warranty and you can have it checked out for proper operation
