This may be a stupid question, but what is the easiest way to tell your 4x4 is engaged and working properly? The light in the dash is burned out.

It feels like it gripping more and when I let off the gas it de-accelerates harder, like you are appplying the brakes (if that makes sense)

I agree, and it shouldnt be to hard to tell. I can hear mine engage, and then it lugs a little bit, if you are not giving it very much gas.

Well a vacuum line came off and was replaced and now there is no question it is in 4x4. Thanks for the responses.

I replaced my vacuum switch (top of x-case) swapped front shift assy. (used one) and still had 4x4 issues. I suspected a vacuum leak so I siliconed all connections and it was OK for a while. When it started to act up again I heard a hissing noise under truck right after I shut it off. Once again vacuum leaks. The fix was to spend the measly $35. for a complete mopar vacuum harness. Learn from my 3 months of chasing problems and getting stuck!
