The 2006 Cherokee with what they call active drive is a full-time four-wheel-drive system when the computer senses a loss of traction it automatically turns on the 4x4 system.

There were two different systems. If you have the Quadra-trac I system there is no shifter. The Quadra-trac II system has a small transfer case t-handle near the gear shift. You should read your owners manual. Check the Jeep to make sure some jerk did not put a 4x4 emblem on a 2WD though.

I bought mine yesterday and in the morning I am bringing it back to the dealership and getting my money back. There is no t shifter, but below the shifter and on the shifter console is a plus and minus and when the shift is in drive, it can be moved to plus or minus and the D on the dash will change to 1-4. But it does not work. The basic and most simple test is to turn the key on and not start the car and move the shift into drive and then push the shift to the right (toward passenger door) , if you hear a click or a slight electric motor sound (like the motor sound in an electric widow) then that means the 4 wheel drive is engaging. No noise or click, the the electrical inside transfer case or other issue will not work the 4x4. For me, 1st time ever owning a jeep, total junk and never again!
