is that how you would do it? or is there a proper way?
With an auto tranny you have to be in N to shift into or out of 4lo. With the tranny in gear you have a load against the gears, and because you are changing gear ranges that load will make it hard or impossible, It is like trying to shift an un-synchronized manual trans without using the clutch.
Now, 2h to 4h can be done while in gear beacause you are not changing gear ranges, just engaging or disengaging the front axle. Hope this makes sense?
