How do I switch from 4wd high to 2wd in my 1994 jeep grand cherokee I just noticed DUH im in 4wd high what can I do?
I have an 87 jeep wrangler that my father left me. do you drive on the freeway in N or 2HI? what is the difference?
Sometimes if it has automatic lockers you have to put the jeep in n then switch to 2h then put in to reverse to disengage the lockers then your good to go and if you put the 4wd in n instead of 2h you wont go anywhere its n for everything you have to run in 2h on the hwy

if your engine is AMC I6 high output version, it may wont fit without doing small modifications. if it is not high output version it will. transfer case differs model to model. np242 selectrac and np231command trac. they have little difference on 4wd systems. all have 2wd option.
actually it is supposed to have same transmission versions between 1988 to 2001. Aisin-Warner AW4.
If your 4wd selector has three positions (including neutral) you have quadratrack. If you have more, it's not. Quadratrack has no position for selecting 2wd because it does that by itself, only engaging the front wheels when the rear wheels begin to slip.
if your awd or 4wd shift lever has the option for 2wd than put the trans in nuetral at a complete stop and put the shift lever for the transfer case in 2wd if there is no option for this selection than the only way is a labor intensive transfer case swap to a np 231 and it will be a couple of modifications to allow this to work. i hope this helps
A 96 grand came with 3 different transfer cases in different models. if you see beside the 4x4 shifter there is the shift pattern printed there. some models only had the all-wheel drive option with high and low. others had 2wd-4wd high-n-4wd low. I would guess that since you're asking this, your jeep has only the all-wheel drive transfer case option. if this is the case... you are not able to run your jeep in 2wd
Not sure what you mean by "4wd all the time, Neutral". But I can tell you how it's supposed to operate.
The three modes are 2wd, 4wd high and 4wd low. When switching between 2wd and 4wd high it makes no difference whether the Jeep is moving or in neutral. The only condition that needs to be obseved when switching from 2 to 4 high is the speed of the Jeep. It should not be done above 45mph. The switch from 4wd high to 4wd low is a different animal. The Jeep must be stopped and in neutral. Also you should be aware that it is not a pleasant sound or feel when moving from high to low so you should worry to much about the lowed junking sound. At times it may even be necessary to put the lever back to the high position and move the Jeep a couple feet to align gears before it goes into low.
This is the reason for the relative ease when switching from 2wd to 4wd high. There is an art to switching from 2wd to 4wd high then to 4wd low. Once your son becomes familiar with the Jeep and begins using the different modes it will become easier. I would like to add one more piece of advice. After building Jeeps for over 25 years and owning several I have found that 8 out of 10 times that 4wd low is used, it's used incorrectly or not needed at all. It's a good idea to find someone who has experience with 4wd to give a bit of instruction on how it should be used. Especially in the mountains. Let me know if you need any clarification on anything. I hope this helps.
