The system works the same as the Renegade. Like the Cherokee it has no transfer case, unlike the Cherokee no option for the two speed pto and two speed rear dif or locking rear axel. All the lock does is lock the front rear to 50/50 and use break lock differential and then locking it into 1st gear to get 20 to 1 ratio. It is the same architecture as the Renegade but a few inches longer. Renegade 101.2" Compass 103.7" Cherokee 107.0" It is better than any thing else in its class but not as good as a Cherokee.
