Re: just bought my first jeep tonighte. have questions
First, request you fill out your profile, it'll help w/questions. Where are you at? As for the front tire. How do you know it is not engaging? Be aware that w/an open diff both tires do not spin all the time, especially if one has more traction than the other. Electrical gremlins are the worst. As mentioned, check fuses (easy) than grounds (harder). A good voltmeter is useful or at least a circuit tester. Get a repair manual (Chilton's, Haynes) as these will be invaluable for an older Jeep. Better still would be to get a Factory Service Manual (FSM). Repro's can be found relatively inexpensively. Oh and if you are in/near MD I have fenders and maybe a rear corner in my spare parts/for sale pile. Let me know and good luck.
