4wd ??

I own a Wrangler but I have a friend who has a '97 Grand Cherokee Loredo and I don't know alot about their t/c. My question is this...does the GC shift into 4wd on the fly like the Wrangler? She was told by a mechanic that she must stop, and have the Jeep in Neutral to shift in and out of 4wd. I know on the Wrangler, you are moving when you shift between 2wd and 4wd. Does the GC work the same, or is the mechanic correct in telling her to stop the Jeep and put it in N? Thanks.

It's shift on the fly up to 55 mph unless you are shifting into 4-LO. Then you have to do the neutral procedure.

Thanks for the info. I told her it was probably shift on the fly, but I wanted to check with you guys first to make sure. Thanks again.

Yes it's shift on the fly, the owner's manual is also a good place to look this up in the event she forgets or wants to know the "fly" limits

If she is shifting into low, best way to do it is to be going 2-3 mph, shift into neutral, shift into lo, and then back into gear.

Yeah, it sounds like it works just like my Wrangler. To the other poster above, she doesn't have an owners manual with it. It sounds to me like some mechanic told her wrong...probably thinking "oh, it's just some girl, she'll never know the diference". Thanks again for the replies.
