Not really. Your 4x4 system is a constant 48/52 front/rear split. If slippage is detected the center diff (and computer) can divert up to 100% of the total power to either the front or rear axle. In conjunction with this is the Brake Traction Control System (BTCS) that is working in tandem with your ABS to brake a wheel that looses traction and divert power across the front or rear axle differential to the wheel with "more" traction.
