Changing to 4WD

Sorry to post some a dumb question, but I still can't find the answer after about an hour of searching around on the internet.

What are the directions to change my TJ into 4WD mode?

TIA,
Scott

What kind of instructions are you looking for? Pull the lever up one click and you are in 4HI. Pull up 2 and that is neutral and 3 clicks in 4LO. Don't go over a few miles per hour when shifting into 4LO. Is that what you are looking for?

Yea, does the other transmission need to be in neutral?

Does the clutch need to be pushed in when changing the drive mode?

Clutch needs to be in to shift into 4Lo, and you need to be stopped or barely moving.

The driver's Manual in your glove box has the directions and I believe those show directions are wrong because I believe the jeep manual says to be moving forward when you shift to 4H

Thanks everyone. I just bought the Jeep about 6 months ago, and it didn't come with a owner's manual.

This is straight out of the 2001 owners manual in section 5 page 135

SHIFTING PROCEDURE

2h TO 4h OR 4h TO 2h

Shifting between 2H and 4H can be made with the vehicle stopped or in motion. If the vehicle is in motion, shifts can be made up to 55 mph ( 88km/h). With the vehicle in motion, the transfer case will engage/disengage faster if you momentarily release the accelerator pedal after completing the shift. Apply a constant force when shifting the transfer case lever.

4H to 4L or 4L to 4H

With the vehicle rolling at 2 to 3 mph (3 to 5 km\h), shift and automatic transmission to N ( Neutral) or depress the clutch pedal on a manual transmission. While the vehicle is coasting at 2 to 3 mph (3 to 5 km\h), shift the transfer case lever firmly to the desired position. Do not pause in transfer case N ( Neutral)

NOTE Pausing in transfer case N (Neutral) in vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission may require shutting the engine OFF to avoid gear clash while completing the shift. If difficulty occurs, shift the automatic to N (Neutral), hold the foot on brake, and turn the engine OFF. Make shift to desired mode.

NOTE Shifting into or out of 4L is possible with the vehicle completely stopped, however, difficulty may occur due to the matting teeth not being properly aligned. Several attempts may be required for clutch teeth alignment and shift completion to occur. The preferred method is with the vehicle rolling 2 to 3 mph (3 to 5 km\h). Avoid attempting to engage or disengage 4L with the vehicle moving faster than 2 to 3 mph (3 to 5 km\h).


I hope that helps
