When I did a carfax on mine, it originally came from Florida.

That will destroy the transfer case even worse. Then it will lose its drivability all together.

Tis was my thought exactly

Well anyway you dont have to have snow with the selec-trac. you can use it for rain too, Just use the all wheel drive and you can use it any time.

About the 4WD. I remember this sign a teacher had in school. It read: It is better to have a parachute and not need it than to need it and not have it!

I drove my 98 249 for six months without the front driveshaft (because I couldn't find a cheap used one) and I had no problems. It is still working great in my buddies zj with 230,000 miles on it

Uhh... I think they've probably sorted something out in 6 years. Threads from 2005.
