4x4 low automatic shifting

Hey guys,
Long time lurker, first time poster, I was looking into picking up a 1997 F250 7.3 with 146k miles on it and all seems good with it except the shifting when in 4x4 low is pretty hard. There is no slipping or hard shifting in 2x4 High or 4x4 high, but when in 4x4 low the shift from first to second is pretty hard. I wanted to know if this is normal on an automatic as all the four wheel drive vehicles I have owned previously have been manual transmission.

Welcome to the Org!!

Mine has some rough shifts, keep in mind that is alot of torque that is amplified by low gearing being changed around. if by hard you mean a neck breaking shift then thats an issue but if its just a solid shift then it should be ok

Thanks for the welcome and response.
My initail thought was exactly as you are saying because the shifts are smooth in 4x2 and 4x4 high, and the shift is only somewhat hard in 4x4 low going from 1st to 2nd gear, but I also did not know if there could be some issue with the transfer case that I am just not picking up on.
