First Time Jeeper!! '89 YJ

Hey there fellow Jeepers! My name is Indy and this is my first Jeep/4x4. I would love to learn all I can about it plus some. First I would like to get some help with the whole 4x4 thing. I kinda know what each setting is like 2H to 4L or whatever but would like to get a better understanding. My Jeep is a 5spd 2.5L 4cyl. It's got a 4" suspension lift with 31" tires. Thanks

Welcome Aboard! This thread is based on the latest Wrangler but it explains 4WD and some of the same principles still apply to your YJ: http://www.wranglerforum.com/f33/jee...wd-135183.html
