Quick way to identify Quadra-Drive II

Hi Everybody,

I'm in the market to sell my 99 GC with QD, and I definitely want to get a WK with QD2. It's just too good in the snow to go without.

Is there a quick and easy way to identify if an 05+ Limited has QD2? On the WJ's, there's an emblem on the lower left tailgate. I haven't seen anything like that on a WK.

So, is there a way to identify it's present, without talking to the owner? IE - browsing through cars.com and just looking at pictures.

Thanks!

OK, that helps when I check them out in person, but not really for narrowing things down online.

You don't see a lot of pics of diff covers...lol.

Any other tell tale signs?

I'm pretty sure the only badging option is the "Trail Rated" badge that anyone can buy for $30 and that won't even tell you what 4WD system is installed.

There are only two ways to tell, count the bolts, or look at the badging under the t-handle for 4lo.. If it says QD-II then it most likely is, but the only way to truly verify is to count the bolts.

Agreed. Look for this:

I could be wrong but I thought the limiteds only came with QDII. The Laredo is where it was an option.

First is the QDII badge below the shifter assembly, unfortunately any 3rd party or shady dealer could slap that on for marketing and increased profits. The only true way to tell is to count the differential bolts.

"...I could be wrong but I thought the limiteds only came with QDII. ..."


QDII was available on all three GC models, not the SRT8 of course.

also, WK's with QTII or QDII are both Trail Rated. so, if you see a Trail Rated badge, that does not mean it has QDII, could have QTII.

to be sure: count the bolts on the rear diffy.

It says Quadradrive II by the gear shifter.

Also, Use a VIN number decoder:

That did show in the report that my XK had QD-II (12 bolts and badge at shifter) so that would be another alternative to actually looking at the vehicle while shopping online.
