    I am very new to Jeeps or anything 4 wheel drive so please keep that in mind. Is this normal, when i put my 89 Cherokee into 4 wheel drive it drives funny on short slow turns kinda jumps a little. Driving straight its normal but if I slow down to almost a crawl and turn sharp it jumps a little. thanks everyone.

    That's normal, all 4 wheels are trying spin at the same rate and while turning they can't hence the binding.

    Just make sure your seat belt is on Calvin, then hang on and enjoy the experience.

    BTW, get a plow on it yet?

    Yeah thats normal, as said it's the driveline binding. Don't do it on dry pavement unless you like replacing front u-joints.
