There is nothing wrong with your 4WD.

They don't go bad from not being used.

Just use it and don't worry.

When spring has sprung, change the transfer case fluid as MGRawr suggested, grease all the zerk fittings, and change front and rear diffs and tranny lube for good measure.

Can I change my name to MGRawr? That's pretty legit. Haha.

Adopt your pets. Don't shop for them.

Visually check to see that there are connectors at the cad. If I had a pic of one on a '91 I would post it.
