Okay, when I got the jeep, the kid told me the 4wd didn't work. He said the shift linkage to the t-case came loose. Checked it, it looked good, put her in 4wd, and it went right in, so I assumed it worked. I got my wife to move it very slowly so I could look under it to see if the front driveshaft was spinning and it was.......okay, heres where I'm confused.....I have NO 4wd indicator in the dash, when I'm playing in the mud, if I get stuck and have to put it in reverse, it doesn't look like it's slinging up any mud from the front wheels either. I just about got stuck a few minutes ago in the woods on a very muddy, slippery, trenched up hill. I was out there trying to get up this hill for like 10 minutes...lol. I think something funny is going on. How hard is it to change it to that cable thing you pull instead of the vaccuum operated stuff??? Seems like the 4wd would have to work if it were controlled by a cable, right?? or atleast better than it does with vaccuum......help me out guys, I don't wanna have to walk home in the mud...lol. Thanks in advance.
