All quad?

I've been looking at Grand Wagoneers and was wondering if they're all quadra-trac?

Well, that depends what you mean:

The name "Grand" Wagoneer actually only applies to the '84-'91, when Jeep added "Grand" to distinguish it from the little XJ-based Wagoneers introduced in '84. These had the leather interior and big wood siding. They could come with either the Selectrac full-time/part-time transfer case (NP229 or the '86-only NP228) or up until '86 the NP208 Commandtrac part-time unit.

Many people call all full-size Wagoneers "Grand" Wagoneers; if that's what you meant, then only the '73-'79 Wagoneers came standard with the Borg-Warner 1339 Quadratrac full-time transfer-case; there was no optional case. Jeep changed to the NP219 full-time transfer-case for '80-'82 models, but still kept the "Quadratrac" designation. Then, however, this case was an upgrade from the standard NP208 part-time Commandtrac case. In 1983 they dropped the NP219 and went with the NP229 as the full-time option.

From '63-'72 (and maybe in '73 as well), the Wagoneers used the D20 part-time case; after that, it was only available in the Cherokee.
