    Talking about stupid! Checked my gas mileage, getting about 9mpg (a mix of
    city+highway driving). Today I had a friend drive the jeep while I checked
    in which position the NP231 selector gave power to the front wheels and
    which didn`t. The stick has four positions(according to the position diagram
    on the selector) 2H-4H-N-4L I only have 3 position that I can engage on
    mine...I was driving with the selector in the middle (N I thought) which
    gives power to the front wheels, Now I`m driving with the selector all the
    way forward, no power to the front wheels. So I assume that the selector
    knob is not the original? So all the way forward is 2w drive, pull down is
    4w drive high, pulldown again for 4w drive low? My Chilton book doesn`t even
    give shift patterns!
    There are some pictures of the 4w drive selector and transfer case etc.

        Thanks for all the replies. Steering is fine now. Jeep came with the drivers side sway bar disconnected I replaced the sway bar and greased the front end.....it also turns out I was driving in 4wd high the whole time.... 140 miles of highway and city! Hope I didn`t mess anything up!
        Thanks

          maybe try a double steering stabilizer
          this is probably not the problem from the symptoms you described, but what about a steering box re-enforcer thingy-- they sell them at 4wdh
