4 Wheel drive

I'm new to the Cj thing. I recently bought an 84 CJ7. It has a swapped in 3spd automatic and a Dana 300 transfer case. The engine is the 258. There is a chance of snow here this weekend and I'm not sure how to engage the 4 wheel drive. I know I have to lock the hubs but then what.
Can I just shift into 4 wheel drive? What position does my transmission have to be in ( park, neutral, etc.) to shift into 4 wheel drive? I searched online but couldnt find anything helpful. I will appreciate any help you all can give me.
Thanks,
Derek

Lock hubs, put tranny in N, shift T-case into 4wd (H or L). Sometimes you have to drive backwards a few feet to engage/disengage. Try turning hard left or right while going slow and you'll be able to tell if you're in four wheel drive. Enjoy!
(To disengage: tranny in N, shift t-case to N and then unlock hubs.)

Kinda touched on this already but make sure you back up at least 4-5 feet once you've put it back in 2H and unlocked the hubs so they disengage. Otherwise they're not actually disengaged, which can cause a lot of excessive wear on the front axle.
