You can shift into 4-hi while driving. In order to shift to 4-lo you must be stopped, and gear selector in neutral. Check out your second sunvisor(behind the main one), the directions should be there also.

Manual says you can switch to 4 HI at speeds up to 65 mph...

Another thing...make sure that your 4WD indicator lights are "on steady" before you put the hammer down...Hard on the transfer case if it is shifting when you floor it. You will find that it shifts best when there is "no load" on the drivetrain....(not accellerating or decellerating)

You wanna make sure you don't use 4WD on dry roads. Only on slick surfaces or off-road. If you ever go around a corner and it feels like you have a flat, or the front-end seems to "buck" a little, you might want to glance to make sure you haven't accidently shifted into 4WD.

Manual also says not to shift into 4-HI while turning or damage can occur.
