Car Wash and Quadra-Trac II

Call me a noob but, do I have to put my transfer case into neutral on my WK to go though a car wash? In my new jeep (WK) I have the Quadra-Trac II, in my old jeep (ZJ), I had Select-Trac and all I had to do was put the transmission in neutral, while in two wheel drive mode.

Thanks,

You don't need a shovel or a snow blower or salt..what you need for all this snow is one of these!!!

Re: Car Wash and Quadra-Trac II

I was about to say WTF are you doing at a car wash? A true jeep lover washes their jeep by hand unless it's winter. LOL
