4hi and 3 - 2/1 gear

Is it okay to use 4 wheel high with 3rd gear or 2-1?

It depends. We really need more info. I'm assume your transfer case for 4wd has 2wd-4wheel high-neutral-4 wheel low. If that is the case, any tranny selection will work but you shouldn't really be going that fast if you need 4wd. With your transfer case, the np-231, you only have locking 4wd which if used on dry concrete can cause the drivetrain to bind up and break.

Do us a favor. Please fill out your jeep info in your profile and change the engine to an I6. They didn't make V6's for xjs.

Hrmm. Didn't know that. Was this in the mid to late 80's?

if you have a NP242 you should be fine in 4WD full-time using 3&1-2 thats all i use in winter around here as MTs and ice dont go well when you add brakes to the equation.....i just down shift accordingly to my speed
