Transfer Case Confusion

I have a 96 Limited that comes (here in Australia at least) standard with the Quadra-Trac transfer case. I cannot find any detailed info on this transfer case.

Web searches found me lots of info on the 'Quadra-Trac I' and 'Quadra-Trac II' transfer cases fitted to WJ models, but are either of these the same as the Quadra-Trac as fitted to the ZJ Grand Limited??

Is my Quadra-Trac permanent 4x4 or is it on-demand? how does it distribute power?

Any info anyone could provide will be greatly appreciated.

this may help, clicky


You have a NP or NV 249, it's more of a progressive 4wd system where power is transfered when slippage occurs, never had one myself so I can't be of much help there.

P.S. 242's ROCK!

Thanks for that info, it helps to clarify things a bit. I'm still searching for more info. Does my transfer case distribute power to the diff with the most traction or is it not that advanced?

I had heard that there was a better transfer case for real off-road stuff, the 242 sounds like the one. From the info I can find about the 242 it has 2x4, 4x4, 4x4 locked and 4x4 low. Is that correct?

From everything I can see the 242 will just pretty much bolt in without modification?

Hello down under! Have a look at this site: http://www.jeep.com/4x4/index.html?c...epage&type=tab

If you want to swap a TC, pls. look here:

Think what you are looking for is the 242.
