I'm not understanding the use of AWD, for the Quadra-Trac & Quadra-Drive systems. The way I understand it from wjjeeps.com & Chrysler's video on youtube; in 4hi fulltime all torque is put to the rear wheels, but the front diff. is not completely removed & torque can be transfered to the front if slippage occurs. Doesn't AWD mean, all wheels are used to move the vehicle ?

Our Quadra Drive jeeps are AWD but normally deliver power to only the rear wheels unless power is needed to the front wheels due to slippage.

THIS!

I'm a selectrac fan over any AWD simply because of that right there. It acts as a 2wd UNTIL slippage occurs, THEN transfers power to the front diff. Now, I'm not knocking the tech at all, or the speed at which this transfer occurs... that's actually pretty cool IMO. What I am disputing overall, and WHY I THINK that selectrac is better, is because I think there are situations where I could avoid a traction loss better/ easier/ under more control, in full time 4 hi vs. 2wd rear only... as the QD system ACTS until slippage occurs. So if you want that 4hi option and 4hi feel, the QD fails.

That make sense? Simply my preference on highway ice, and I think that's where it would matter most to me.

Our jeeps are not awd at all. They are a full time system that automatically shifts torque appropriately. Awd systems always have power to the front and rear. That's not what the 247 case does.

All it has is the same 4hi as the Quadra track II and Quadra drive systems. No other options, hense, no lever or button.

Has anyone ever seen a corporate sponsored WJ advertisement that used AWD or all wheel drive in a description of WJs. Use of either of those just leads to confusion as indicated by some of the posts in this thread. Any mention of AWD in connection with WJs should be prohibited.

this pops up every couple weeks, and it's all explained in the stickies, and thoroughly on wjjeeps--which should have been read by everyone on here.

quadra drive versus quadra trac

I have a question, if anyone could please help I would appreciate it. My husband and I are hitting the road in our motorhome and we are looking for a towable vehicle. We'd really like to get a Jeep Grand Cherokee. We found one we really like that's a quadra drive, but no one seems to be able to tell us the difference in that and the quadra trac. Is the quadra drive flat towable? Even the owner's manual is a little vague.

Click the link. Check out the section for recreational towing for instructions on proper procedure. QuadraDrive must be flat towed with the transfer case in neutral or on a trailer unless you want to go through the effort to remove the front driveshaft.

Quadra trac 2 and quadra drive in the 99 to 04 Jeep Grand Cherokees are made for towing flat.....hence the reason people want them for a tow behind.....put the quadra trac2 or quadra trac in neutral and go for it. Jeep made a mistake in 2005 changing it all to electronic.

You might have to retract that if you look up the dictionary definition of 4WD and AWD ! Or look at this.....

http://www.digitaltrends.com/cars/wh...l-wheel-drive/


......particularly paragraph four of the "All wheel drive" chapter!

Or this......

http://www.hummerknowledgebase.com/general/4wdawd.html


.....about 8 paragraphs down.

Just saying! Im not saying it is or isnt 4wd or AWD of course but only cus I dont want to be banned!

Maybe its just use of different terms in the US....who knows?

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got yourself an electrical problem!
