Re: Quigley Test Drive: 4x4 issues
If you engage on pavement it's really easy to bind up, which makes it stick. On top of that, sounds like it needs to be broken in by being shifted. Seems like good like new operation to me!
In that situation backing up a few inches usually helps let the bind off.
Once the tcase is broken in and shifts easier you can shift on the fly- as long as you're not accelerating or engine braking, you can let off the throttle and shift to 4x4hi without stopping- DON'T do this into 4x4 low, you're not going slow enough, you think your are but you're not- so better just to stop going into low range until you've had lots of experience.
If you're having trouble you can put it in gear, let things spin (or move the truck slightly depending on if you're in gear) and try again.
Sounds like a find!
