    on a different web site it said it was the other way around, full time could be used "full time" while the part time was for part time only as in deep mud or snow and not for hard dry roads

Like it says full time is all the time part time disengages the one differential for slightly better fuel milage at the expense of less off road capability

I have an '87 Jeep Cherokee 4.0L and had the same question about full and part time 4x4. I was given conflicting answers so i found the ORIGINAL manual and it says the following:

PART-TIME: is "high lock" and should only be used off road in mud, snow, or slippery conditions for most traction, but should never be used on dry pavement.

FULL-TIME: is designed to be used on any surface year round and utilizes the slip clutches to keep vehicle from bucking on tight corners on dry pavement.

Full time 4x4 is when transfer case locks front and rear output shafts together.
Part time a differential inside transfer case to divide drive between front and rear diffs.
Full time 4x4 should never be used on hard surfaces, this can lead to trans-axle damage and big $.

I have 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 limited. There are different 4WD modes available. I was wondering which 4WD mode is the most fuel efficient and how do you engage the different 4WD modes?


4 wd part time is the most fuel efficient becuase it only engages when the tires start to spin. to engage the different 4wd modes pull up on the lever next to the shifter and you'll feel it engage into to its respected modes. recommended you engage the 4wd while moving slowly except for 4wd low full time which you need to put the shifter into neutral before you can engage it. remember 4 wd low full time is needed when none of the other modes work.

1998 jeep grand cherokee keeps shifting up & down when it is warm


You cannot drive with different size tires front and back, especially with full time 4x4's the tires travel different distances when rolling.. a one inch height difference translates to a three inch rolling difference...ten turns of the tire = a thirty inch difference in distance traveled between the front and rear of the vehicle..being all attached to the same point (the transfer case) there is no way to compensate, therefore something must fail or the vehicle will stop in a locked up (bound up) condition. The weak link is the viscous coupler in the transfer case...likely what has failed.

4 wheel drive


use part time on wet or slippery road surfaces. Use full time in snow.
Though some will shift into different modes at a standstill, I generally do so when rolling at 5-20mph...it makes engagement easier on the transfer case. when driving on dry road surfaces, why use 4x4? it uses more fuel and really has little benefit. differences in front/rear wheel speed must be absorbed by transfer case alone, while on slippery surfaces, a bit of tire slippage reduces stress on unit.

1996 jeep grand cherokee ltd problem with transfer case because of different size tires


You should have the same size tires in the front and back. By having 2 different sizes, you are changing the gear ratios between the front diff. and rear diff. You could wipe out the t-case especially if it is full time 4wd.
