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

Cant shift 1996 jeep cherokee into 4 wheel drive/shifter stuck


what aer tires touching? ice or dirt.?
if its not AWD "Quada-Trac"
then its part time 4wd
and is only for driving on ice or dirt
PT 4wd that is what Part time means.

see that here (down for week end)
https://www.jeepdied.com/

see the most common options there.
i cant guess what you bought.

to undo what you did,
get one tire on dirt or ice
and shift back to 2wd

or read your operators guide
good luck.....
i cant really help, can see your shifter
nor see what tires are rolling on.


ALL JEEP PART TIME SYSTEMS DO THIS,
WHEN DRIVERS DO NO READ THE OPERATORS GUIDE
IT'S NOT AWD! IF NOT.

THERE IS NO CENTER DIFFERENTIAL OR MAGIC CLUTCH

98 Grand cherokee all time 4x4 wont shift into 4 lo


older post 1month
you failed to say what tires are touching, dry pavement or ice/snow or off road...... MATTERS big time.......!

the operators guide tells you not to do that.
the rules for 4Hi and low are different. RTM? yet?
last year ZJ
Quadra-Trac(tm) NV242 box. it is. full and part time box.
what does it (oper guide)tell you.
stay out of part time on dry roads. (clear?)
rule 2, save rule for Low Range.
low range is not full time 4wd.
if you fail to believe it , it will wind up and go crunch

here is the direct quote.... see last line,,, its 100% real.


25794037-bn3fg1eepmrl330iewfulw43-1-0.jpg i you had the NV231 box, all gears are Part time, all 4wd gears stay off dry pavement.

Are there damage to any 4wheel drive components shifting from 4wheeldrive setting still with transmission is indrive


Most 4WD systems are designed to be shifted in and out "on the fly". It is less stressful for the drive train doing it while in park however. 4WD does not like cornering - especially on "grippy" surfaces such as dry asphalt (why would you need 4WD on dry asphalt, anyway?). Dry asphalt is really tough on 4WD as the the tires may have minute differences in circumference as a result of wear and since all are spinning at the exact speed (even going straight ahead), those difference add up and strain the drive train. Slippery surfaces allow the tires to slip away those differences as soon as they begin to appear. Even wet pavement allows this to happen, tho not as easily as grass, dirt, snow or ice.

Drive in a tight, complete circle on dirt and you'll see that there's a shorter path of tracks for the inside tires than those on the outside. Yet, the 4WD locks all wheels to turn the same amount. The jerking during the cornering that you're feeling is the inside tires trying to spin to "catch up" to turning at the same rate as the outer tires. See the video linked below.

Check your manual and you'll likely be cautioned against running 4WD on dry pavement for these reasons.

Whenever I shift my 1999 Jeep Cherokee Sport into 4 -wheel drive to get out of a snow/ice packed parking spot (mornings), I have trouble getting it to return to 2-wheel drive. What am I doing wrong? ...


Some vehicle have a spacefic routine you have to go threw to go from 4 to 2. Try it in neutral. or after you shift back into 2 drive in reverse for a bit till it pops back into 2.

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

How to shift a 1998 jeep grand cherokee into 4 wheel drive


Four low is almost never used. I use it on very steep rocky or muddy trails in the woods or to pull someone out of mud or a ditch. Though some will shift standing still it is best do do this while rolling. Four high can be shifted at low speeds of 2 to about 35mph (higher also but not really good idea) Low can only be shifted between 2 to 10mph. If you find yourself stuck and unable to shift because you aren't rolling you can also turn the engine off, engage the transfer case and re-start. That avoids having the gears clashing together. Best rule is if it begins to grind, don't force it.

How to shift into 4 LO in 2004 jeep grand cherokee


The correct procedure should be described in detail in your owner/operation manual.
For a 2004, 90 % sure that if it's a quadra trac you have to immobilize the vehicule, put your transmission shifter to neutral keeping foot on the brake obviously, engage the low on transfer case pulling the transfer case shifter, engage the transmission to drive
If it's a select track, normally you have to keep the vehicule moving very slowly (2 mph), move the transmission shifter to neutral, push the transfer case shifter to the right and pull it firmly. Once transfer case engaged, put back the transmission shifter to drive.
It could take few seconds to engage and disengage depending on the temperature and road condition. Do not try it on dry surface (preferable on mud, snow and wet surface). Drive at low speed because you will feel that it's very low geared.
By the way, follow the reverse process to reestablish normal mode

Hope it will help
