The use of 4lo
Hello everbody, just a quick question.
A few months ago I bought an 04 Rubicon. I read the manual through and through but still was a little hesitant to try 4lo. So i took it to the dealer a week ago to have them explain it in person. So the transmission guy comes out and says to hop in the passenger side. He gets on the road (dry pavement) and pops it into 4 high then 4low to show me. Granted, he was going real slow, but I asked him if what he was doing was going to break something. He says "Na' it's okay, these things can take a real beating." Then he pops on the dif locks to show me and I started shitting bricks, man. I was just waiting for something to break because of what the manual said. So we went all the way around the block slowly without nothing notable except a thud bringing it out of 4lo and that was the end of the test. My question is though, if something did break would I have heard and felt it right then or would it be a thing to happen over time? Everything seems okay, maybe I'm just being paranoid. But something didn't sit right with me ever since. Could something have gone wrong and would I have noticed it right away?
