??? about which 4x4 system jeep has

im new to jeeps and have another question, ive been told that jeep has about 4 different 4x4 systems, is that true, and how do you tell which the vehicle has? Someone said there is a sticker in the glovebox with a code, where would i cross reference that code? Which 4x4 systems if any, should be avoided? Thanks for all the help
Craig

None of the Jeep 4X4 systems, when properly maintained, are worse than others.

There are two basic systems and then some minor changes in rigs with those systems.

What model are you looking to get, age of rigs you are looking at????

It really depends on the years you are looking for. There will be either a part time/full time, part time, or full time t case setup.

Just about every Wrangler is going to be part time 4WD and then add in vac disconnects in the front for older models.

Grand Cherokee's have alot of the full time transfer cases.

I could go on and on, it helps to know what rigs you are looking at, year range etc.

Ok, sounds like you are looking at wranglers. For the most part you are looking at the same 4wd system in all of them.

87-95 (YJ Model) will be a 2high, 4high N 4Low shifter in the cab. Along with a vac disconnect front axle.
97-06 (TJ Model) will be a 2High, 4High N 4Low as well but a sold shaft in the front axle, no disconnect.

Yes wranglers have a similar if not the same transfer cases for almost all YJs and TJs, 07+ JKs now have a little larger t-case, but still similar in design. They are going to part time transfer cases, this is preferred for the most part if you are planning on off roading often
