I just recently sold my 02 tj and bought a 89 yj. my question is can I shift into 4h on the fly or do I have to be stopped? I also have lockers on both axel's can I engage them at any speed? thanks for your help im new to rock crawling but good in mud. so any tips help..
You can shift into 4hi on the fly just fine, i would not however turn on the lockers while on the fly. Im not familiar with selectable locks so much but it just doesnt sound like a good idea lol 4hi fine, lockers no. Just my .02

I accidentally not thinking shifted mine into 4x4 going about 10mph one day and thought the ring in the axle was going to break. Sounded loud as hell. Now that I have a solid shaft I can shift on the fly though. I wouldn't do it over 10 though
Complete rebuild axle/engine/everything swap in progress:
Parts already gathered for assembly: 2001 Ford 302, 1990 Mustang GT 5.0 ECU and wiring, NP435, NP205, Pair of axles from 04' F350 SuperDuty (Sterling 10.5 Posi rear, Dana 60HP Front-Both Disk Brakes 3.73 Gears), 37" H1 Tires, 9" lift TJ Coils for 2 link conversion in front, Stage 2 Clutch Kit, 3 Row Aluminum Radiator, Chevy Astro Steering box (4" front Stretch), XJ Rear Leaf Springs (6" Rear Stretch), and lots more.
Cool ill just do it at 10mph or lower I don't want to mess anything up. As for lockers I guess I'll mess with those when at a stop before I climb anything. Thanks for your time. I can't wait to get this jeep out there. My 02 was good but this 89 is super clean and built really good. It's a beast ill put some more picks up soon. The guy who owned it before me never took it in rain or snow so it's clean. I know mud messed alot up in my 02. And was a pain to clean. So I decided rocks are clean lol.
