I still don't understand the 4x4 system very well so my first question would be on the 4h mode.
-on my jeep its really hard to engage wheres the 4l shifts like a hot knife through butter? why is this? I literally have to use enough force to engage it into 4h.
The free play in the steering can be and should be fixed. About rattling - It is entirely possible that the wheels are not balanced; wheel balancing is a must. Engaging into 4h should be smooth - no question about that. I would recommend that you take your Jeep to a decent workshop and get it serviced. Do the usual things - change engine oil, filter, top up the power steering oil, brake oil, etc., etc. Get the workshop to balance all the wheels. If your Jeep doesn't travel in a straight line and instead drifts, get the wheels aligned. Once you get through with the an initial service, your Jeep will be fun.

I have owned a Jeep Grand Cherokee (4.0 litre inline 6 cylinder petrol version) for six years and except the engine sound (sounds like a diesel engine) the machine was great.

All the Best and Have loads of fun!

Which kind of 4 WD shift knob you have ? A normal small gear lever type or the newer Jeep one that resembles a hand brake lever. My guess is in the Jeep Wrangler YJ of 1991 it should be the former.

Unscrew the plate under the 4 WD shift lever and look for wear and tear, if any problem with the gear shift to 4 H there should be scrapping and powder of iron fillings.

Refit and lubricate. Check for gear oil and tranfer case oil. Both can be accessed from below the vehicle. In off road situations when the going gets tough a Wrangler YJ actually does very well in Low 3 and 4.

Any more queries let us know, I have spent half a lifetime rescueing Wranglers in the Desert, but they do very well on the sand as well.
