Question about 1988 Jeep Wrangler
Old dog , jeep, sure.
its a PART TIME 4wd, not AWD.
you post but forget (100s like this here) with no road surface stated.
dirt, ice, snow, off road, pavement. what??
my wild guess, is this car is new, to you,
and you never read the operators guide yet.
lost 25 years ago, but sold on fleabay
do not drive on pavement dry , or you WILL wind it up.
WHEN I SAY 4wd I MEAN , the front lockers are locked AND
the transfer case is in 4wd.
Here is the best page on the net for PT-4WD
here we go , WINDUP. 101
answer, is , DONT DO That.

SOURCE: Transfer case pops out of 4-lo
Either your linkage is not properly adjusted or the shift fork is a bit worn inside the transfer case. I have a bit of wear on my own and shift into low range while rolling with no load, between 5&20mph and it works fine except that I need to anticipate needing it before hand. One important rule...If it grinds, don't force it into gear. That will cause damage.
Also, if you just got it, change the oil in there...you have no idea when it was last serviced.

check to see if front drive shaft is locked in by spinning it by hand, if it is there is a sensor on top of the tranfer case that has the vac lines connected to it. On the bottom of the sensor there is a ball. If the ball gets stuck open the vac stays on and the front end stays engaged no matter if your in 2 or 4. The sensor is like 22 dollars from chrysler.

you have a vacumn actuator on the passenger side front axle tube that engages your front axle when put in four wheel drive. those are notorious for not working
