    Your vin won't tell you that info. The W in the vin means it is 4wd, but that's all. Do you have locking hubs on the front axle? If you do, you have 'part time' 4wd. If you don't have lockouts on the front hubs, then you have full time 4wd that can be locked or unlocked at the transfer case. Tell me what the axle is like at the hubs and what the transfer case lever has for positions on it and I'll tell you more.
