Typically you can shift into 4WD at any time but optimum speeds seem to be less than 35mph. As far as driving in 4WD, highway speeds of 55-65mph typically aren't excessive, unless conditions prohibit safe driving at that speed.

Don't drive it over about 40 in 4x4

dont shift into 4 wheel over 35 migh damage the transfer case... as for top speed you can go as fast as the truck will go in 4 wheel...as long as your going straight when you turn in 4 wheel mode it put alot of strain on the transfer case if your on dry ground and the faster you go the more strain until boom- no more tranfer case
