How do I find out which 4x4 system is in a 2008 commander

I am looking at a 2008 commander rocky mountain edition. I am not getting a straight answer at the dealership. There are several different systems for jeep. I am trying to find out if the commander is a 4x4 or all wheel drive. There is nothing inside the jeep that I can put my hands on to put it in four wheel low. no button no lever. How would I found out what system is on this jeep before I buy it? It's not in the manual. I have looked, only says if equipped.I have tried websites with no luck. Thanks for your time please help.....

You must have the single speed transfer case, since you don't have low range. The 4x4 Jeeps are actually AWD. What size engine is it? Tell the dealer you want the factory build sheet that will tell every option and feature from factory.

If there is no silver lever on the console like in the picture below then it has the Quadra-Trac I (QTI) 4WD system. Go here to see how the QTI system works---> http://www.jeep.com/en/4x4/how_systems_work/quadra_trac/

Look to the right of the shifter. In the indent storage pocket on the console, at the rear, if there is a chrome "T" handle, this is what used to select 4LO. This would indicate QTII. It is standard on the V8's, optional on the V6. If there is a Chrome QuadraDrive II emblem behind the shifter, this is the only indication for QDII, which adds ELSD's to QTII. If there is no chrome "T" handle, this indicates QT1, a full time 4WD system. QT1 is basically the same system as QTII, but without the 2-speed transfer case (4LO).

QT1: QuadraTrac 1 - Standard V6
QTII: QuadraTrac II - Optional V6, Standard V8
QDII: QuadraDrive II - Optional V8 - was initially standard with the 5.7 Hemi, but then became optional.

Your V6 is a 3.7L, single OHC. If there is no chrome "T" handle, it has QTI. This will give you the features on your Rock Mountain Edition.

Unless you have a gear or dial inside your Jeep and there is a 4x4 icon on the jeep, you have a full time 4 wheel drive. I had been told when I purchased mine, that it was AWD until the sensors detected a wheel slip and then it auto goes into 4x4 mode. Not so. Have an independent repair person (or even your local tire company) look at the wheel units and axle. If they do not show a "lock down" then the vehicle is full time 4x4.

No one needs a mechanic to see if its a 4x4 or what type of 4x4 either. It's to easy and most of the things to look for have been mentioned. But every one leaves out the only true way to tell the difference between QT2 and QD2 and thats the diff cover bolt counts. 10 for QT2 and 12 QD2, also a 4x4 badge can be added with out actually having 4x4 installed. So a quick inspection in the wheel well works fine. Have a half shaft (CV) then you have a 4x4 then look for the t-handle don't have that QT1 have that then look at the diff cover to see which one you have.
