Got Me A Jeep

Hey all,
I am the happy new owner of a 2012 JKU Sahara. I want to say that reading this forum was part of my push to get one. I’ve learned so much in here and you all seem like such positive and happy people. Happy Jeep owners. Jeep feels like a family, that’s super cool. I’ve owned many different Audi’s and today I learned the difference between AWD and 4x4. I hopped in my Jeep excited to turn on the 4WD because I’ve been looking up how to work it. I turn it and try to move out my parking space and go left and she starts moving super funky and then I try and go right and it’s like the front wheels going up and down doing there own thing. I turn her off immediately and freak out. Then I put here back in 2H from 4H and hop out and look at my suspension all crazy (again I’ve only had AWD cars). I get back in the truck and everything is smooth. I quickly hopped into the forum and from there I was just like, let me sign up. I got a whole personal scenario and question to ask lol. I just don’t want to hurt anything. She’s fine right?

Yes, that it the way it should feel. Unlike AWD vehicles, 4x4 vehicles aren't designed to have all 4 wheels powered all the time. It is primarily for off road use and your use on the road should be limited.

In the mean time, I just like to say . . .

Welcome here! I wouldn't think you've hurt anything. Sounds like the Jeep was talking to you. Saying, don't do that. Read the manual about 'when' to use 4WD.
