The part time 4x4 on Cherokees is really meant for either offroading or when road conditions are less than perfect. General offroading, heavy rain and light snow on pavement you'd want to use 4-Hi. Serious offroad conditions, icy roads, heavy snow, or flooded roadways you'd use 4-Lo.

Note: General offroading constitutes as gravel terrain, some hills, anything where you'd need a little extra traction to maneuver through. Serious offroading constitutes steep, rocky conditions, rock crawling, heavy mud, or anything that requires lots of low torque to get through. After doing a few offroad trails, you'll get used to the settings pretty quickly. Wink

In other words, you should not use Part Time 4wd on pavement. It will bind exactly as you experienced and that can cause drivetrain problems. That applies to all 4wd vehicles...not just Cherokees.

If you have a Full Time 4WD option (NP242 t-case), you can use that anytime...pavement included.

ok cool... so the binding is just due to normal conditions of the tires tracking at different rates? I think i understand.. will this occur in full time 4x4, just not as prevelant...?

Short answer is no, it will not be as prevelant...if it's noticed at all.
