In your profile it says you have a D35 in back and a D20 in front? The D35 is most likely right for your rear axle but you have a D30 in the front. If you want to verify, just crawl under your Jeep and take a look at the tags on your pumpkin. It will tell you what axle and gearing you have.

Actually 2x4 is not the correct way to express this. A 4x2 is a vehicle that has 4 wheels with 2 of them driven by the engine. A 4x4 has 4 wheels & 4 driven wheels. A dually pickup may have 6 wheels but would be considered a 4x2 or a 4x4. A vehicle with dual rear axles would be 6x4 or a 6x6 if it has a front differential (such as a military 2-1/2 ton truck).

Could be because the transmission is cold and will shift easier as it warms up. It could be the rubber shifter boot is cold/stiff which can make shifting stiffer. If the shifting gets easier as the transmission gets warmer or on warmer days, these two things would be at the top of my list.

You should have vent lines attached to the pumpkins of the differentials. The front one should go up to the top of the left (?) side of the radiator. The top end of the rear vent is attached to the fuel filler hose.
