4wd confusing to me help please!!!!!

Okay so all this 4wd, on the fly stuff. What is the definition of all This stuff. Do I have to go into neutral to put it 4wd even if it is "on the fly"? do I have to get out and lock the hubs even if there set to auto? In 4wd do all 4 tires have power going to them?

It wouldn't be called shift on the fly if you had to stop and put the truck in neutral every time you wanted to go into 4wd. You only have to lock the hubs when going into 4wd low. Yes all tires have power.

Not sure about locking in 4 low. I'm in low often and have never turned the hubs.

When you put it in 4wd it should turn the hubs for you, you can hear them turn when you turn the switch. Im pretty sure your just supposed to make sure your not going over 80km/h when your switching.

You only have to get out and turn hubs if you have no vacuum. I try to be under 50km/hr when going in/out of 4hi. You have to be stopped to engage 4lo.

Sure does, its the little thing on top your under hood fuse box. Pull the power plug out and try your 4x4 dash switch.
