Greetings,

I was curious if anyone knew the downside to running my Liberty in full-time 4wd mode on a regular basis?

The manual is not clear at all on the issue, saying simply that full-time 4wd can be used on any road surface in any weather (where-as part-time 4wd, aka 4-Hi, should only be used on wet and slippery roads).

It's a 2002 Liberty Special Edition with Select-Trak.

Thanks in advance
Beau

Only thing I could think of is gas mileage.

Sounds like the manual describes it well...but why on Earth would you want 4wd in dry weather on dry pavement???

Because of a wife like mine who will never get the part-time/full-time thing right. I put it in full-time in November and leave it there until spring.


I know of no disadvantages.
