!st time Jeep owner

Hi to everyone, I'm picking up a jeep this Sunday & I have found all the answers here w/ a search about questions that I've had but I have something that haven't really found a direct answer too . So here's my question, There is a red pull button on floor of jeep between the front seats & shifter, any idea what this is for ? current owner ( until Sunday ) doesn't know, it just stays pulled up. I'm thinking this is for the vacuum for the 4 wheel drive that these jeep are so known to have problems with, possibly a upgrade for the vacuum ? I will post a pic of it. Thanks for the answers , love this place !!!!

Have you tried to trace it back to what it's hooked to, looks like a line-lock for the brakes or fuel shut off for heavey equipment. Trace it back and see where if leads and let us know.

look at the 4x4 system. on the right front axel is the vacuum engagement sys. is the red knob hooked to a cable going there? if so it is a posi-lok system for engaging 4 wheel drive.
