uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh full time on jeeps just meas power is supplied to all 4 wheels, they can still spin freely of eachother, part time is for the really slick stuff like snow, wheels cant spin freely of eachother in part time (my jeep only has the commandtrac system which has part time only)..
On my selec-trac 4WD full time does a 40/60 split between front and rear with the transaxle acting like an open differential. On wet roads it is much more secure and offers loads more traction before (usually the front left tire) loses traction.
When the roads get really slick with snow, I pop it into Part time 4WD.

The limiting factor on all 4WD will always be stopping and turning.....so just slow down

ahhhhh u got the selec-trac which means u have the np242 transfer case, i was considering swapping mine to that as it is just about a bolt on project....but that was before i started disliking the jeep in my driveway

One just like yours... 1988 Laredo with moonroof and off-road package. Only thing I've done to it is a Borla exhaust and cone CAI intake. Only 150,000 km. I bought it new. Bullet proof engine.
