Thanks jeepwm69. That makes sense, had not thought of that because I thought it was automatically in 2 wheel drive until the rear started slipping. I have only had this Rubicon about 11 month's so still learning things about it. I almost did not buy it because of the drum breaks but it was in mint condition (for a 2001) so it was hard to pass up. And I did replace the drum breaks this spring with after market Disc break kits front & rear, much better setup. Any idea where I might find the Wide Open front driveshaft disconnect? What's all involved with doing this?

It's a cable actuated disconnect. Not cheap, but it works and makes steering much easier. I use them on my 300's.

You could also swap in an electric selectable front diff from a newer Rubicon or Foreman, but that's a little more involved and would cost about the same.
