What the *#%@#* is Quadra Drive # 2 ? ?

My 04 Overland has Quadra Drive ( assume that means version # 1) with vari-lock front and rear axles. What did they add to make it different ? Is the QT2 transfer case different in 06 than it was before ? Hopefully not some electronic gizmo from Inspector Gadget than will fizzle-out when you need it most ! If had wanted that I'd be driving a Honda Pile-of, or the Alabama-Benz !

Hello guys, im new, and ive been out of jeeps for many years, but now my wife wants an 01/02 Grand.... My last one was a 94 Grand 4x4, with V8, back then you could not get the V8 with selectable 4x4/4x2... is that still the case for these? im looking at used rigs, i have learned allot from your posts.. is there any versions with V8 in 01/02 where you can run in rear wheel drive, and then select 4x4, this would save on gas, and front u-joints, but since it will be for my wife, i guess id probably rather have the All time 4x4/AWD.... just trying to learn... Soo from this post, which is better in my shopping "Qaud drive" or "Quad Trac" ? sorry for all the questions but i need to learn QUICK buying this weekend or next.

Selec-trac is the version with the 2x4 option. Quadra series are AWD with different setups in the differentials.

How about putting a sock in it for a change. Myself, and perhaps other WK owners here are getting tired of your underknowledged opinions about the vehicle. If you had ever driven the new electronic QDII system in snow on slippery pavement you wouldn't be making such unsubstantiated statements. But then again, that would mean you would be letting facts get in the way of your opinions.

So you're saying its an Inspector Gadget thingy !

Great ! Just one more reason I'm glad I avoided the 05 version.

And for the record, I've driven a jeep for 18 years, done a lot of my own repairs, and admit I'm not a mechanic. . . .BUT FORUMS, like this, are where one is Encouraged to express their opinion. If this was only for people who know all the answers, you'd be the only one posting.

If an expressed opinion is based upon facts then it's an answer. If not, then it is a question not the answer.

Correct on 2 examples. I have an I6 without the factory tow package and I have the D44a in the rear with 3.73 gears. It seems to be a bit rare, but they are out there.

I just noticed a couple of things, ONLY in 2004 they offered a Quadra Trac 1 in the 2004 Laredo with the I6 and uses the NV147 transfer case.....weird as it says it only has 4 wheel drive high. No neutral nor low. NEVER have I seen one. What is it a button like the 2005 on up?

The next thing, this 11 th Grand Cherokee WJ I have is a I6 with the quadra Trac 2 and it has the NV-247 transfer case just like the quadra drive. So what type of transfer case oil should I use, and also on the front and rear diffs I am going with Redline 57914 75W140 GL5 Gear Oil as it already has the limited slip additive. Comments on transfer case oil?

QTII is when they had the low range option. As far as oil only use the mopar oil for the NV247 tc from dealer as it already has the proper amount of friction modifier in it. No one else offers it. DO NOT put anything else in it!!

Okay, so now after reading this thread and the clicking the link, I am confused. I have the 2000 WJ LTD, and it says my Quadra Drive was equipped with a "LO, part time"? Mine only has full time Hi and Lo. Was there another configuration?

I feel like ive hopped into my delorean and gone back in time. This thread was from 2005 lol.

Anywho, no, there was no other option. The lo in your "hi and lo" locks the drive shafts together making it a part-time use only setting.
