Product Information

MSRP: $400.00
Average Price: $1,016.29
Manufacturer: Jeep
Recommended?
Yes: 18 / No: 2

The NV242 provides full time 2-wheel, or 4-wheel drive operation. A differential in the transfer case is used to control torque transfer to the front and rear axles. A low range gear provides increased low speed torque capability for off road operation. The low range provides a 2.72:1 reduction ratio
The 2WD and 4x4 full time ranges can be used at any time and on any road surface. The 4x4 part-time and 4 Lo ranges are for off road use only. The only time these ranges can be used on hard surface roads, is when the surface is covered with snow and ice.

Pros: always in 4wd, reliable, hardworking
Cons: no 2wd mode
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Quadra-Trac works great. However, I wish it could be shifted out of 4WD sometimes for more performance. SelecTrac allows you to do this, however, Quadra-Trac does not.
