This is a sticky for all of the "basic" info that you know about your Grand Cherokee, but someone else may not (i.e. the 4.0 holds 6 quarts of oil).

This sticky is also for useful information in your owners manual, that could help someone that has lost their manual (i.e. what fuse controls what).

A ZJ is the designation given to Grand Cherokees from 1993 to 1998. In 1999 the Grand Cherokee was redesigned and the new version was labeled the WJ.

Edit: FYI in 2005 the Grand Cherokee went through another redesign and from 2005 - present it was labeled the WK

There are three main transfer cases found in ZJs.

1) 249 Quadra-trac - 4all time, N, 4low
2) 242 Selec-trac - 2wd, 4full time, 4high, N, 4low
3) 231 Command-trac - 2wd, 4high, N, 4low

V8 ZJs most of the time came form the facotry with the 249.

which is the best for wheeling? And I imagine 4WD fulltime is more like AWD and not 4WD (which is what the part-time is?)
correct. 4fulltime is awd and good on wet or dry surfaces. you may choose to engage fulltime and leave it on that setting forever if you wish. part time is your typical 4high&4low settings, for use wheeling and lower speeds(mud, rough terrain, etc.).

Death Wobble - comes in many forms, but basically it is the shaking and hopping of the front end of your Grand when you reach a certain speed, and you feel as if you might lose control of the vehicle.

Check out this sticky for all you need to know about it http://www.nagca.com/forum/showthread.php?t=8078

When shifting from 4 wheel full time/part time to 2 wheel, you can do it while moving. However, the shift might not happen immediately. Sometimes, you have to release the throttle to break torque to allow the transfer case to shift.

Always, always shift the transmission into neutral before adjusting the transfer case! Just for an FYI, the user manual says not to switch modes above 55mph.
