Just let off the gas, switch, and back on the gas. Make sure the light comes on first!

Switch in or out at any speed. Just back off the throttle and be sure all wheels are turning at the same speed. That is don't shift when the rear tires are spinning and ideally the fronts should be pointed straight ahead.

Just like H4 said, shift it on the fly as long as you have no wheel spin. I have done this since new with no problems.

I agree! I would keep it under 5 MPH when shifting 2wd to 4wd. I shift back and forth while moving all the time with no problems, however, I have found that when shifting back from 4wd to 2wd I have to let off the gas before the light will go out. I always shift while at a constant speed, never accelerating.

You can shift at any speed but it will only engage or disengage at speeds under 5 mph

it will engage at a faster speed than 5mph, you just have to have your front and rear tires moving at the same speed, otherwise it will not work, imagine if it did though,,, ouch

.

drew is right, if you switch from 2 to 4wd and the light doesn't come on...tap the front or rear brakes a few times and the tire speeds will usually match and engage the 4wd.

and that's a fact jack....
