If it's a local guy be careful if he says, "when you shift into 2nd gear give it all you got."

Saw a video w/the "father of 4 wheeling" and he says you put it in 4wd as soon as you go off road. To many wait, get stuck in 2wd and can't shift into 4wd, at which point ur screwed.

One of 6 of the most common 4 wheel issues encountered.

there is no harm in putting it in 4wd as soon as you leave the pavement. generally speaking, for all the runs I've done, we will meet at the trail head, and I will air down and disco my sway bar at that point. if there is any pavement between the airdown spot and the trail, I leave it in 2wd, and will toss it into 4wd at once we are on the trail. It really doesn't matter though; if you are driving carefully, you can see any obstacle ahead of you and put it into 4wd before hitting it. There is however, no point to swapping in and out of 4wd while offroad anyways, so yes you might as well put it into 4wd as soon as possible. Otherwise you might forget youre in 2wd!
