Try this and see if it helps a little . That's a loaded question. Check back if you need more info or maybe some else has more input.

It is most likely the Central Axle Disconnect as Amerijeep directed you to. This is a very common problem with our Jeeps. You could get a Posi-lock cable actuator to make this problem gone forever. Even when you get it corrected with the stock system, it will mess with you now and again.

One day I ran up over a big snow bank and it pulled all my vacume lines off. Where do I find more info on this cable actuator? Do they sell all the little boots that the vacume lines plug into?

These pictures are great! often I get the impression that what might be basic to one jeep owner is a new lesson for another.

I've neen fortunate. I have never had a mechanical of electrical issue with my Jeep of any sort. I have to do lots of body work, because it had rolled. Everything if perfectly straight now, though. I don't think a trained eye could tell that it had gone over. I wish I had before pics.

True. Though I haven't driven it in over a week now. I think I;ll go sit in it for awhile.

Be back later.

i have an 89 wrangler and shortly after i got it the vacuum lines cracked and one broke. i used some air line from napa and stuffed both ends of the broke lines into it. it worked for about 6-7 months. then i took it hunting and the 4 wheel drive would not work. this made me mad, but then i got to drive my uncles rubicon so it was alright. i ordered the Posi-lok and installed it and all the problems of it not working stoped. now just a short 1 inch pull and it works. i am happy with it.

How was it? feel better. Mine has been sitting a while now too. I have been pretty busy at work. I just told my son to go to sleep so we can go wheelin tomorrow. Now that it has been unuasually warm here, there should be some slimy stuff to play in.

Yep. Good time. I didn't touch myself though. I think I'll get mine out later next week. Work keeps me going most the time lately.
