4X4 control computer
where is the 4 wheel drive control computer on a 2004 XJ. Im wanting to modify my electronic locking diff. so that i can engage in 2 wheel drive as well as in 4 wheel. I am needing some help with finding the control and any other advice you guys might have out there

let me know thanks.

ELSDs were not on WJs, they were on the WKs.

The WJ did have Quadra-drive (Varilok axles)

Re: 4X4 control computer
The 4x4 system in the WJ's is all mechanical, no electronic parts. There is nothing you can change. Since you mention 2 wheel drive I am guessing you have selec-trac with the trac-lok rear axle, the locking axle should engage independent of your 2 or 4 wheel selection on the transfer case.

Re: 4X4 control computer
The trac-lok or vari-lok inside the diffs is a mechanical device which will lock the diff in case of a certain speed difference of the 2 wheels on the same axle. Because you already create a speed difference when making a turn (inner wheel travels less distance thus rotates slower then outer wheel), these diffs need the limited slip additive in the fluid to allow a certain speed difference. Otherwise one of the wheels will slip.
