Having problems with your 1987 Jeep Wrangler ?
Four wheel drive system not working when engaged. 1987 Jeep
\015 More often than not, the four wheel drive system does not function once engaged. When engaged, it acts as if something is in a bind and stops the engine. Would this be a transfer case problem of differential?\015
The not engaging leads me to believe that the problem is inside the transfer case. To verify that, remove the front driveshaft and engage the unit. if it still stalls the engine that's all you need to know. There should be plenty of used units available in local scrapyards for a reasonable price.
