AWD transfer cases are setup to always be engaged. 4wd is selectable and for the most part, designed to only be used occasionally, or on surfaces in which the wheels can slip so that the transfer case isnt trying to do the slipping. Thats where ya see the cases bust apart lol.

Basically, AWD is all wheels getting power, all the time. 4WD is selectable and should only be used when neccessary

personally i dont like fulltime bc i like to pull on the lever (i guess a button works too) and feel it switch over--and i dont think that you can get out of a sticky(or muddy... or snowy) situation as easily with full time then when you can manually switch 2H 4H or 4L

I gotta say I definatlly didn't mind it in the old rover! I only ever had to put it in low one time. considering all the stuff i put it thru, thats pretty impressive!
Full time does suck the gas though.

The difference is the viscous gear... pretty sure the ZJs have this as well.
