    Hey, I have a 95 jeep cherokee that has 4wd, how would I engage it into 4lo, for example if I was to do a little offroading, I haven’t tried engaging it yet simply because I’m not sure if there’s a specific process I have to do to engage it the right way, I don’t want to destroy the transfer case trying to engage it.

    Best to engage 4L while stopped since this is a first attempt. General instructions are slow down to 2-3 mph next engage N on transfer case then shift firmly into 4L then move transmission into desired gear. Reverse the process to get into 4H mode.

    Would it be better if I put the transmission in neutral, then engage 4L, then put the transmission in gears 1-2, or is that what you mean

    If AT shift into N and if MT depress the clutch. Just remember 4L is for 50:50 power f+r axles, increased torque and control at low speeds on non-paved roads
