Then let me know
Wrong.

QD is not AWD it's full time 4 wheel drive.
There is a difference between AWD and 4WD.
AWD all wheels are always getting power.
4wd is variable

To add on top of this. Quadra-trac 1 is AWD but most WJs did not have it. If you have QT1 you do not have a 4wd selector or low range its just AWD. That is the YouTube video we were linked to. That system is much more common in WKs.

Quadratrac 2 is automatic 4wd on demand but not AWD. Most if not all torque to the rear wheels until they slip and a hydraulic pump progressively engages 4wd (its so quick usually you don't ever notice). You won't get any noticeable gains in mileage with a 242 because the 247 is usually RWD essentially. The only way to see a mileage gain is to get disconnectable hubs for the front, else the axle and driveshaft are still spinning regardless of transfer case position.

Quadradrive is just quadratrac2 with limited slip diffs.

So your saying Selectrac spins the front Ds in 2wd? That I did not know. I figured it would not spin front Ds unless it was in 4wd.

Yes it does always spin but, because the hubs are not unlockable. Not necessarily the t-case

I love the Duckling line, but I do have to disagree with the Liberty's lights; They look like **** on a WJ, but to each their own...

I let the fiancÚ take it to run errands and take the dog to the dog park. When she returned, she told that she loves how it rides. So now we will have to lift her stock 2002 60th anniversary WJ. Good thing is is bonus time at work!
