Is my car 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive??

Hi there:

Unfortunately, we need a bit more information from you to determine whether your 1995 Jeep Cherokee is two or four wheel drive. However, the best way to determine this is to call your local Jeep dealership and speak to the service department. Provide them with your vehicle identification number (VIN #) located on your registration or insurance paperwork and they’ll be able to tell you.
