  • Single-speed transfer case
  • Brake lock differential

Quadra-Trac II® 4x4 System

When additional traction is needed, the Quadra-Trac II® 4x4 system kicks in to transfer torque to the axel in need. It works in part with the brake lock differential and four-wheel brake traction control systems. Features include:

  • Two-speed transfer case
  • Four low mode locks front and rear driveshafts for low-speed power, rock crawling, and towing
  • Auto, sport, snow, sand & mud modes
