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

2L- 2 wheels pulling low range (Not very common)

2H- 2 wheels pulling high range (Normal driving)

4H- 4 wheels pulling high range (conditions where 4wd is need and speed over 25-30mph)

4L-4 wheels pulling low range (severe off road conditions were maximum torque is needed speeds under 25-30mph

Welcome Aboard! :wavey: This thread is based on the latest Wrangler but it explains 4WD and some of the same principles still apply to your YJ:
