I would like to use my 94 yj to tow a 5,000lb. boat 1 mile to the boat hoist. Can the front axle be disconnected easily with the yj in low range? It's a 4.0 with automatic. The max. speed limit to the hoist is 30mph, all on asphault. [img]images/graemlins/givemebeer.gif[/img]
I'm not positive about this but I'm throwing a possible idea out there...maybe someone can corroborate this. But if you disconnect the vaccum line going to the front axle this should eliminate it from engaging the front axle.
After reading this post "YJ 4wd vacuum stuff" I think that is all I need to do is install a on/off valve in vaccum line to axle. Is this correct? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
There's a few hills in my 1 mile drive, and 5K is alot to tow.
My vac disco has been gone for so long I can't remember if it is the yellow lines or the green line that activates the axle...whichever it is pull it, that should keep it from shifting over. then you have 2 wheel low.
Still not sure why you would want to run in low gear...your tranny should be able to pull that heavy a trailer for that distance in high.
