2004 Grand Cherokee

Hey All !
New here & new to the Jeep world. Looking at picking up a 2004 Grand Cherokee & putting a 4” lift on it to play around in the bush but still keeping it a reliable daily driver. Just looking for some advice as too what to look for . Searching around for a 4” lift , they say will not fit on all wheel drive....is the quadra track considered all wheel drive ? If so , I gotta swap out the front drive shaft ? Also , what would be the biggest & widest tires I could go with , without modifying the bumpers/fenders .
Any info , thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated .

Can't help you with a lift not a fan of lifted vehicles.

The quadra-trac 4WD system is a reactionary type system, its rear wheel drive until slippage is detected then the gerotor pump in the transfer case will incrementally transfer power to the front axle though a variable clutch pack. Its not really full time 4WD, not really sure why people think AWD is all wheels driving all the time because in most cases its not, its either front or rear wheel drive based till traction is lost then power is transmitted to the other axle....so I'd consider it an AWD type system. However, I'm not sure why that would make any difference for a lift kit. People lift their Subaru's all the time and they're sold as being AWD...so an AWD Jeep shouldn't be an issue to lift I see them all the time lifted with either quadra-trac, or quadra-drive systems so sounds like you just gotta find a place that knows what they're selling.
