Just recently picked up a 1997 Grand Cherokee Limited for a great price. The sale was disclosed as having a bad transmission. The previous owner states that it went out all of a sudden. I thought that was strange. It runs great with the 4.0 I6. Idles, revs, fine. The minute you put it into a drive gear it snubbed out immediately and dies. Something feels like it is locked up? I pulled both shafts and tried putting it in gear and it didn't die. Output shaft was spinning. I am wondering can it be the transfer case or is it really the transmission? Also has the quad trac.

Did you check the transfer case linkage and fluid? Could also be that the viscous coupler has completely locked up as well.
