1998 Grand Cherokee - Quadratrac 4WD system
I just bought a 1998 Grand Cherokee V8 and I have a couple questions about the 4wd system... It has the "Quadratrac" full time system which means that the t-case can only be locked when its in Low Range. My major traction concern is for deep snow winter driving, when low range probably wouldn't be appropriate. Does this mean that my jeep (unless in 4lo) will send the most torque to the wheels with the least traction?? If so, how bad is this thing off road / in deep snow?? Unless, is there somthing in that t-case that acts like a limited slip differential so it would shut down a slipping wheel/axel?
Also, I've heard that there's an option for a limited slip rear differential... how can I tell if my Jeep has one?
One more... My truck doesn't have tow hooks on it. I drove over to the Jeep dealer and looked at one that has them, and they don't look at all like just standard hooks... front and rear, they've got some pretty unique looking brackets that connect them to the frame. Where, besides my dealer service dept. can I get a set?
Thanks a lot!
