Yeah, it's tough to think about giving up that functionality, isn't it? Please make sure you go to Jeep.com and tell them this via their contact page. I already did.

I've only ever dealt with wranglers and trucks with selectable 4WD, so help me understand... What is the benefit of the fulltime 4WD?

The benefit is that is can be run safely even on dry pavement. What this means is that if like so many, your Jeep is your daily driver and you must travel on varying road surfaces like in winter when around here you can go from clean/dry pavement to snowy/icy and back again 4 times in a mile, you can throw it into FullTime 4WD and get a good well-planted feel without stressing your drivetrain. It also works extremely well in the rain.

There must be a difference between this setting and being able to put it in to 4Hi. What would that difference be? This is a total hijack of the thread. I'll shut up now.

I apologize, too.

I think the difference is that it is "open" from front to back, meaning that the front wheels can turn at a different speed from the rear.

Part time 4 Hi and 4 Lo mechanically locks the front and rear output of the transfer case, front and rear axle must turn at the same speed. Tire slippage is the only way to remove any binding that might occur such as making a turn. Front tire might need to travel at a different speed than the rear tire due to the arc of the turn. To prevent damage to the drive train you use part time on loose surfaces.

Full time 4 Hi uses a differential inside the 242 case to allow the front and rear outputs to turn at different speeds if necessary. You can use full time on dry pavement. Full time is very useful on roads that have patchy ice or snow but other parts of the pavement are clear and dry. This internal differential is locked during part time use.

There was a concern with the shorter wheelbase of the 2 dr Wrangler that the short drive shafts might have too much angle for a full time transfer case. Mainly there would be drive shaft vibration at speed. But the 4 dr Wrangler has plenty of wheelbase for a full time case.

1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years
2nd one- 2001 Cherokee Limited. Got it before they were gone.

Dang didnt you all hear the boss when the New jeep comes out they will THINK about adding this as a option. They only got a Rubicon cause they trick the bean counters into it at a test drive out at the rubicon.

THREAD REVIVAL! lol. but looking at the timeline, cj7 was 76-86, yj was 87-95, tj was 97-06, so shouldnt the next jeep after jk be open in 2016? only makes sense.

I'm thinking of waiting until the '14's come out. I am looking for another Jeep and would prefer something that can handle 35's easier than the TJ. My TJ was the only vehicle I have ever owned that I loved. Bought 6 vehicles since then trying to find something that I loved as much as that vehicle. I would be satisfied with a the JK with the newer engine. Would never buy one with the original engine. That thing was a pig with only 33's. A diesel option would be cool, but not necessary for my next purchase. Gonna drive my 2013 VW CC for about a year and then it will be time to get rid of it.

Holy thread necro batman!

On topic, I would imagine, with the WK2 getting the 3.0 CRD at the end of next year, for the 2014 MY, the Wrangler couldn't be too far from the same privilege. They both share 3.6 powertrains at the moment.

1998 Grand Cherokee 5.9 Limited
2016 Wrangler Unlimited Sahara Edition

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Ya is it true that a diesel WJ is coming out? If so then we might have a diesel Wrangler soon. I've heard rumors but they're usually false. Oh also what is ROFL?
