All the way up is 2H, 1 notch down is neutral the next notch down is 4H and you have to move the lever to the side and down to get it into 4L

Like stated by harleydragon above.. it needs to be in a gear to pull.

if your transfer case were in neutral it would not move unless you pushed it ..that would be basically the same as having your transmission in neutral

basic rule,

2wd, on road, offroad mild stuff...
4H, bad driving conditions such as water, snow, ice, slippery leaves, whatever
4L, towing, rescues, crawling over stuff or through stuff. Its like a tractor when in low gear, it will pull a frikin house down but you don't want to go over 7-10mph usually.

note, when in 4wd hi or low use it on a surface that will have some slippage.. it does not like dry pavement and will bind up, really bad when turning.
