Put jack stands on all 4 corners with the jeep in 4WD and w/ it running and in drive hit the gas. See if all for turn. LOL don't do that it's not safe..

I stop, put the trans in neutral and then engage the transfer case, pretty sure thats how its suppose to be done otherwise its like changing gears in a manual car with out using the clutch.
