New grand wagoneer owner and need help

Do away with it or put a reliable cable unit in

I believe its towards the passenger side of the front axle, should be pretty easy to spot as it would have a vacuum line running to it. I know they were pretty problematic so there's a cable actuator out there to get rid of the unreliable vacuum engagement. I think there's also a way to permanently just engage the front axle so all you have to do is flip the switch in the dash.

It would really help to know what year GW

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

It is a 1988, I would do the cable actuator, but I can’t find them anywhere for a grand wagoneer

Make sure you actually have vaccuum disconnect first. It should be on the passenger side right next to the U bolts that hold the axle on IF YOU HAVE IT.
