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.

Quoting Bok269 (Reply 1): 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.
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.
