You can expect at least another 92K from it if it's properly maintained.
You can change from 2H to 4H while stationary or on the move.
The best way to engage 4L is to stop and put the main transmission in N, then use the transfer case lever to select 4L.
Engage D in the main transmission then drive off.
As to whether you stalled it or not, I don't know I wasn't there.
#1836 of 1888 Transmission Vibration or What?
Feb 26, 2011 (4:15 am)
I have a 4.0, 6-speed manual transmission, 2005 Jeep Wrangler. Since recently having the dealer replace the clutch and flywheel I have been experiencing a pronounced vibration in the vehicle at approximately 2500 rpms, regardless of which gear the car is in. The vibration is similar to the feeling of riding on unbalanced tires (tires were rebalanced and problem remains). The vibration significantly lessens above and below 2500 rpms.

Since recently having the dealer replace the clutch and flywheel I have been experiencing a pronounced vibration in the vehicle...........
It would be surprising if the the two were unconnected.
Three possibilities spring to mind:
1: The new flywheel wasn't checked for runout after it was installed.
The tiniest speck of grit or rust on the mating surfaces where it's bolted to the crankshaft is the usual culprit, and if it's not entirely square to the crank then there will be a vibration.
2: Similar issue with the clutch cover/pressure plate. Either something preventing it from sitting flat on the flywheel surface, or it's been distorted buy an incorrect torque sequence.
3: The front propshaft was separated at the slip joint and replaced out of phase (same for the rear if you an SYE kit on the t/c and a rear propshaft with a sliding joint).
Whatever, let the dealer take care of it; it's their issue to fix, not yours.

Take a look at the drive shaft. Check the U-Joints for wear or damage. Even a broken seal.
When the U-Joint starts to go bad, you will get noticeable vibrations that vary depending on your speed.
Your problem could be completely unrelated to the clutch work. And it is an easy diagnosis and cheap fix. I would look there first.

It could, but it's been my experience that unless the two issues are entirely unrelated, i.e. "since having the tires rotated the windshield wipers don't park correctly", it's usually the case that the last item worked on is somehow the cause of the problem that appeared immediatly afterwards.
#1841 of 1888 Vapor Lock??????
Mar 22, 2011 (4:33 pm)
I have a 1997 Jeep Wrangler with a 2.5L motor. Fuel Injected,
When the motor is cold...starts and runs like a brand new motor.
Let it sit for 15 minutes and its real hard to start. Real strong gas smell. Just like it's flooding it's self out.
I have changed every sensor on the motor. I have changed the plugs, plug wires, distributer and even all four injectors.
I am about ready to try a FOR SALE sign next.
I love the Jeep except for this one thing.
Anybody have anything or comment or fix for this aggrevating problem????

ok i have a 2004 jeep wrangler unlimited other wise known as a LJ and i was muddin it the other day and it was hard to put into 4H then when i tried to put it in 4L i stopped put the transmission in the N position and pulled up and it seemed like it engaged then i put it back in drive and stepped on the gas and it went to feet lunged foward and i was out but then it was like the whole transmission slipped into nuetral and its been acting weird when using the 4wd since can someone give me an idea of what could be wrong with it?

..............and its been acting weird when using the 4wd since
I suspect you built up tension in the drivetrain while in 4WD which wasn't or hasn't been released yet.
You'll have to explain 'acting weird' for me to make a better guess, but off the top of my head I'd say the transfer case is still in 4WD or else something is damaged.

It's not vapor lock (you have fuel injection).
Have you checked for codes?
