If your pumkin on your rear end sits off to the passenger side you have the quadratrac.

Automatic or manual transmission?


Shift lever for 4WD on the passenger side of a stick shifter would not be Q-trac.

Automatic. And I found out it's a quadratrac unfortunately.

Thanks for the quick responses

I wouldn't say unfortunately. If the chain is in good shape and you take care of it, it's a great transfer case. They are great in snow, too!

Other than the chain stretching issued, there's nothing wrong with a Q-trac that has been treated to the low range and the part time kit.

My 77' is a Quadratrac setup and it's never given me an issue. The Q trac gets a bad rap due to poor maintenance by end users.

I hear a lot they can last with good care . I just am not a fan a always being in 4 wheel drive for a gas mileage purpose. Having the v8 is already cutting into that. Haha
