I have a 2003 tj sport manual and was trying to climb a snow pile today. My buddy noticed that when in 4 hi the front wheels weren't spinning but the rears were. In 4 lo all 4 wheels were spinning. When I shift into 4 hi the light doesn't come on, does anyone know what could be happening? Thanks

Check your linkage. Going into 4wd is all manual.

Sounds baffling low is past high. If it's making it that far why not high? Linkage seems to work. It is after all moving pAst high. I'd love to know what it is. If ya find out please pm me if you would be so kind as I don't visit this forum often. If it was me I'd doubt my friends eyeballs. Was he witnessing both fronts not spinning at once or one?
