Manual TJ - 2WD to 4WD

I have a 06 TJ and this is the first 4WD vehicle I have owned.

My question is what is the proper way to shift to and from 4H and 4L and 2WD? Do I just stop and push in the clutch, then shift?

TYIA

You can go from 2WD to 4WDH on the move in fact it is recommened to shift while moving. I'm not sure of the max speed but I have only done it under 10mph no clutch needed. 4WDL is another story I only do that at 1 or 2mph roll or stopped

As long as all four wheels are rolling 4h to and from 2h can be shifted up to 45-50mph but not recommended. 35-45 mph max if temp is below 32. To and from 4L is best done at a stop or rolling less than 5mph.
It's easier at a stop for me and with the transmission in neutral to go into and out of 4L.

going into and out of 4L you need to be in neutral!

read your owners manual, that will straiten out all the confusion. alot of people have preferred methods but you must understand what the factory says to do before you can fine tune what your jeep likes.
