General rules: Don't engage the front axle on dry, hard surfaced roads. Don't go from high range to low range while moving or with the transmission in gear. You can shift from 2WD to 4WD on the move, but not while giving it gas and preferably at slower speeds. My personal experience says don't use 4WD (full-time 4WD or AWD are a different matter) on icy roads at normal driving speeds. Keep the tire pressures the same all around--significant differences can cause problems. Your owner's manual should give you the basic requirements. Websites such as this, and those dedicated to 4 wheeling, will tell you a lot. Try browsing through previous posts. You will probably learn a lot. Good luck.

Ditto

For 4WD low: stop the vehicle, place the transmission in N, pull the 4WD lever to 4WD low, put the transmission in drive, and go for it. To switch back to 4WD high or 2WD high you must repeat the process above.

For 4WD high: you can switch into and out of this while moving but do so at lower speeds and not while accelerating.
