Nope. They should disengage after you put the lever back in 2WD. Might take 10 feet for it to disengage.


What problems are you having?

Try backing up after you disengauge 4 wheel drive, sometimes this helps the hubs to pop out of gear. Shouldnt have to move mor than 2 or 3 feet.

I don't know about your 99 but my 1990 cherokee has full time hubs
The front drive shaft will disengage but the axles still turn
Backing up and sometimes turning the wheel a little will help to disengage a stubborn transfer case.

The hubs stay ingaged but the front drive shaft does not. Is there a vacumn shift motor or control switch that could be defective? Thank You.

After looking at some diagrams, your vehicle does not have a motor/vacuum controlled hubs.

Your hubs and bearings are one assembly. If you are getting groaning type noises, you need to replace the hub assembly.
