4 Wheel Drive Question

So my wife and I had to make an emergency trip back home to Michigan from Florida last night and I tried my 4 wheel and didn't have the best of luck. This is my 3rd Jeep, all which have had 4 wheel drive, but it only shows 4-low. I have a 2007 GC Laredo. Do they not offer the 4-high and 4-part time anymore or is there some special trick to get that in. Also, when I put it in 4 part time, the traction control turns off. I don't remember that happening on my 2004 GC or my 2008 Liberty. These may be stupid questions but thanks for the help!

Re: 4 Wheel Drive Question

Wk is 4high all the time

4lo is low range

If your putting it into 4lo - you said "Also, when I put it in 4 part time, the traction control turns off" this is 4lo, and it changes how ESP works on the diffs - A pseudo locking diff in a sorts. This sounds like you have QT2

Re: 4 Wheel Drive Question

it is always in 4 wheel drive. 4-lo is only for when you are stuck and going under 5mph

Re: 4 Wheel Drive Question

Yea I figured that out when I went out and played in the snowy roads. HAHA I didn't know they switched them to 4 hi all the time. Handles like a dream though! Thanks for the help all!
