I just bought this 88 cherokee and it had a rebuilt transfer case. The Jeep is a 4.0, auto. The transfer case goes to 4HI and to 4L when the lever is pulled, but the power is not locked to the front. I found a plug on the top of the transfer case and a two wire harness that were not connected, not sure if they need to be plugged in. The wire seems like it won't reach the plug so I wasn't sure about it. Thanks Scott Sad

88's have a vacuum disconnect system on the front axle. My bet is that wire harness on the t-case turns on the vacuum actuator and engages the front axle.
