With a little practice, you'll find you get used to rowing in and out of the 4Hi mode in snowy conditions, as I do with my XJ.

Pretty much you can use the part-time 4WD modes on anything but asphalt/concrete - a dirt/gravel parking lot would be an option for practicing.

Low range adds a 2.7:1 multiplier into the driveline (planetary assembly in the tcase), you won't need that unless you're offroad or pulling a boat up a launch ramp; max speed in 4Lo is only going to be around 15-20mph.

Nice find on the digital manual. I'm partial to the hard-copy for my Jeep, you can get the actual Chrysler one here if interested: https://www.factoryrepairmanuals.com...l-shop-repair/

Looks to be a bit more coin than I paid years back for the two-volume set for my XJ, but there's also eBay:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/2005-Jeep-L...MAAOSwplNcv7IK (includes separate volumes for powertrain, with volumes just for the diesel engine and trans!)

Rob,
Thanks for the links! I had no idea that even the owner's manual in the
khaki case was worth $30.

Got my new lug nuts on today, it was clear that the other front wheel was
in need of additional torquing. Got the wrench now set to 100'#s, and with
the rest of the rear brake package arriving tomorrow, I'll get her on a
lift next few days. And keep checking the lug nuts.

Oil change and get the parking brake working is the goal, and a new MAP.
I'll have to play with the 4WD on suitable surfaces/conditions. I do have
a boat, and lo 4WD on a slippery ramp could be just the ticket.

Are the new lug nuts the OEM style with the "foil caps", or are they proper "solid" ones like McGuard sells?

Rob,

Appear to be solid, Chinese off Ebay, $14 for a set, nicely chromed.
Good solid fit on my 19mm socket, much improved on what I had.
100'#s of torque and no worries.

Now for the rear and parking brakes, parts are in. Replaced the MAP,
found my little Chapman mini ratchet screwdriver and even had the right
4mm allen bit, huzzah! The original sensor was in better shape than expected.
Just a little oily, oh well, got a spare now.

Shifting the auto around town, and short hops, gives me around 24.5mpg.
Had a short highway run, OD button on and she loafs along at 70 very comfortably.

My farmer buddy's rain rutted gravel drive game me a chance to hit part time 4WD.
Shifts smoothly in and out, vehicle didn't blink, lol, I need something more
difficult to traverse.

ONly time I've used 4-low is for working in the yard. Put it in 4-low and let off the brake. No tire spin, so no slipping on our lovely red clay.

I've only used 4lo when I've gone off-road, honestly.

I'm a bit modded now, but with good driving skills you can do an awful lot with an unmodified Jeep. I have many times over the years seen folks with completely stock Jeeps be astonished at what they're capable of (including myself, once upon a time)

Want to get a taste of what it can really do? Maybe take a run up to Rausch Creek Off-Road Park in Tremont off I-81, they've got plenty of stuff suitable for newbies and do periodic guided rides/101-type stuff. I've been going there once or twice a year since 2007.

There's also the annual All-Breeds Jeep Show in York in July, they have an obstacle course you can run your Jeep on that can be lots of fun for first-timers.

Just driving some country roads and some steep driveways, I'm beginning
to realise this is a VERY different vehicle to the Golf. No speed demon, but
immensely capable, never owned anything like it.

Rob,
The York show sounds like great fun. I'm close, though that time of year
I'm usually on one of the 1000 Islands. The Libery's first mission is get the boat up there. I'll plan on getting back to Lancaster for a couple of days for the show, it's only 20 miles or so away.

Thanks again gents, I'll keep on working the old girl up to scratch.
(In retrospect, I should've started it's own thread)
