You must be a new jeeper.... anyways Depends on the type of tranfer case that is in your vehicle, most are the same though. The owners manual always has a great description of the different 4wd modes. If yours is like mine all you have to do is pull the 4wd lever into 4h (4 high) which you can use for light offroading and towing/pulling, then to get into 4-lo (4 low) make sure your at a compete stop then shift into transmission neutral pull 4wdl lever to neutral then to 4-lo( if u have trouble getting it to stay in 4lo try shifting into it by SLIGHTLY rolling abit while shifting 4wd lever), keep in mind if u do this in a slow manner it may not shift and you hear a grinding noise. 4-lo is great for serious offrading and towing/pulling. hope this helps if not you can always google this subject and find someone ot some site to tell you better than me.

Ryan is right, but I have found that putting the transmission in neutral while shifting the 4wd will make it engage easier. Personally, I find that shifting while the truck is rolling slowly (3-5 mph) with the trans in neutral gives the best results. When shifting back into 2wd, you will sometimes have to pull the shift lever, then put the truck in reverse and back up a few feet. for some reason, backing up seems to speed up disengagement of the 4wd

Thanks I am new and didn't get a manual with my 92 Cherokee.

But none of the comments to disengage 4wd work with my 99 Laredo what else can I do?
