Ok, this may be a simple answer to some people but to me I need to ask. New with jeep Cherokee Sport 2000 ownership.

If you want to pull a vehicle out of a ditch or vehicle snow stuck ect ect ect.
What set up should you use with a 4x4 drivetrain before you start yanking
2 wheel drive? 4 wheel full time drive? or what.

answer could be given for dry and wet , sand and gravel conditions.

or off road mud hole.

thanks

Unless they are barely off the road and not at a bad angle, use the 4lo option. Will give you the best the jeep has to offer. If you are on solid ground it may be possible to pull them out in 2wd especially if you have an auto and can control the revs. But even in 4lo the Xj ain't very heavy to be trying to yank out anything other than another jeep or so. If you are in mud, sand or dirt or snow just lock it in 4lo and try to ease them out, but don't expect much other than spinnin your tires. Have heard of guys backing up and getting a running start with the rubberband yank pull kinda thing, but personally I like to keep my tranny 'under' mine. LOL So, yeah don't try anything heavy even in 4lo unless they are barely stuck or if they are paying you well. HA Hope this helps, good luck!
