So the wintry weather is starting to pick up here in Wisconsin and its time to put that 4WD on my Jeep to good use. I am having a bit of a problem though with the entire 4WD system. I know that that there are four different types: Part time, full time, 4Hi, and 4Lo. What I don't get is what the difference is between them. Which one would I use when there's snow on the road? Also, I can't seem to figure out how to shift to full time, the other three I can get but for some reason I don't know ho to get to full time. If anyone could help me out I'd appreciate it thanks!


Will you watch the Cleveland Browns and the Detroit Lions on Sunday? Only if coach Eric Mangini resigned after a loss.

Feel free to correct this:

Part time vs. full time-usually this is used to differentiate 4x4 systems across different vehicles, not different modes. Usually you have one or the other. Is "full time" printed on the switch?

4hi is a high range 4x4. This is the ideal mode for when there is snow on the road

4Lo is a low range 4x4. I'm pretty sure that you should use this during bad rains.

Your best resource on this is probably your owner's manual.

Nooo you should only be using 4Lo in off-road/extreme conditions...Never never use 4Lo on dry pavement. It's good off road for climbing/descending hills etc. Stick with 4Hi unless you get massively stuck or something.

If you're concerned about winter traction and handling, the very best thing you can do is get a set of dedicated winter tires, like Bridgestone Blizzaks.  yes

Actually the very best thing would be to move out of Wisconsin. You know kill two birds with one stone  duck

So long as you move well south, that is. Otherwise, a move might make things worse.  Wink

Only use 4Lo if you get stuck, don't use 4Lo for any extended period of time or above 10-15 MPH.

Use 4High, and even then don't go over 40-50 mph.
