Shifting In or Out of Four-Wheel Drive Low

Notice: Shifting the transfer case into Four-Wheel-Drive Low while moving at speeds faster than 5 km/h (3 mph) may cause premature wear to the transfer case, and may cause the gears to grind. To avoid causing premature wear, and grinding the gears, do not shift the transfer case into Four-Wheel-Drive Low while the vehicle is moving faster than 5 km/h (3 mph).

• Shifting into Four-Wheel Drive Low should be done, if possible, with the vehicle at a slight roll, 5 km/h (3 mph) or less.

• Shift the transmission into N (Neutral).

WARNING
Shifting the transfer case to N (Neutral) can cause the vehicle to roll even if the transmission is in P (Park). You or someone else could be seriously injured. Be sure to set the parking brake before placing the transfer case in N (Neutral). See Parking Brake on page 9‑58.

• Shifting into Four-Wheel Drive Low with the vehicle at a stop may be more difficult. You may be unable to complete the shift to Four-Wheel Drive Low, and the transfer case will end up in N (Neutral). This is normal, and is a function of the gear teeth aligning in the transfer case.

When this happens, make sure the engine is on, shift the transmission momentarily to D (Drive) and back to N (Neutral), and then complete the transfer case shift.

• Shift the transfer case shift lever in one continuous motion into the Four-Wheel Drive Low position.

• When in Four-Wheel Drive Low do not drive faster than 72 km/h (45 mph). This will reduce wear and extend the life of your transfer case.
