Changing the allwheel drive to selective 2x4

Im thinking about buying a jeep grand cherokee. The one i looked at is allwheel drive. I was wondering if there is anything i could do to make it so i can select 2x4 or 4x4. Is there any kits you can buy for this? Or would i need to change the transfer case to make it selective 2x4 4x4.

You would have to change the transfer case. While this is a fairly popular swap, you may not want to change it out. It really depends on what kind of driving you intend to do. If you are going to be doing mostly on road driving, the Quadra Trac is an absolute gem in the ice and snow. If you are going to be doing mostly offroad, the Select Trac will handle the stress much better.

You'll pretty much have to switch your transfer case out to a 242.
