this is true if the transfer case is in neutral, If you can't get into 2 high I hope you are not driving it in 4 low with the hubs unlocked.

I gotta ask why is everyone telling me that pulling back is 4hi if the shifter that is all original shows that it is 4lo.[/QUOTE]

Because the normal driving position on the road is 2 high, which is fully forward, you would only be in neutral on the transfer case if the truck was being towed.

When in 2 wheel drive, with the transfer case shifter in 2 high ( fully forward), pulling it back one click would be 4 high.

as I said, if you can't get it in 2 high you shouldn't be driving it.

Don't feel like anyone is ganging up on you or anything, we are just trying to help. Sometimes it can be difficult to understand what someone is saying when reading. Just try what we suggest and report back with what you find and we will help you to figure this out.

From forward to back position is 2hi, 4hi to 4lo so technically you have to pull it back half way to 4hi. I think thats what you were asking hardb0dy?


Its a confusing thing to try to explain but once you make it work you will not believe how simple it is. Some truck have a little odd thing that needs to be done. If I push forward on the shifter going from 4lo to 4hi my shifter will not move down at all. As long as I am not moving it will move 4lo to 4hi and back with ease. With hubs unlocked it may not like 2wd to 4hi and back when moving.

I drive my truck with hubs in the free position and the shifter in the N position. When I'm ready to lock it in I lock the hubs and then either I can pull back to go 4lo or if I want to switch out of it I will have to push back up to N then push more to get to 4hi then 2hi but my problem lies with not being able to go past N weather I'm locked in or not.

The guy I bought it from who owned it 15 years did exactly what I'm doing and never had a problem with it that's why it's messing with my brain so much

You can't be driving it with the transfer case in the "N"
position, in "N" the truck would not move.

Can you take a pic of the shifter in the "N" position? If you don't know how to post it send it to me at ahardb0dy@aol.com

Either your truck is not in "N" when you think it is, or your linkage is screwd up underneath the truck.

"N" is neutral and just like a manual tranny your not moving (unless your on a hill and rolling ) in Neutral.

I think you answered your question in your post here:

"When I'm ready to lock it in I lock the hubs and then either I can pull back to go 4lo or if I want to switch out of it I will have to push back up to N then push more to get to 4hi then 2hi but my problem lies with not being able to go past N weather I'm locked in or not."

I think, you transfer case is in 2 high when you are doing your normal driving, and as you said, when you want to "lock it in" you lock the hubs and pull back to go to 4 low, but I think when you pull back you are actually in 4 high. That is why the shifter won't go any further forward, it is already as far forward as it can go.


When you are in the position you say is "N", does the truck drive normal? Meaning you can take it up to highway speeds and the tach ( if you have one) is in a normal range?


Next time you are in your truck, in the position you say is "N", pull the shifter back to what you say is 4 low, than push down on the shifter and see if it will go back any further. if it does, pull it further back hard and see if you get 4 low.

If not than something is wrong underneath and I would crawl under there and see if you can see that shift gate part I posted in the diagram, labeled in red.

Good Luck.

This is in my former 94 Pathfinder and the transfer case is in 2 high, you can see how far forward the shifter is:



if it was in Neutral "N" the shifter would be where the red line is:

Sending you a picture. Yes when the shifter for the 4wd is in the "N" position I can run down the highway and I have a yacht as well. I understand what everyone is saying I just don't think y'all are understanding what I'm saying fully and I've tried to word it best it can. Like I said looking at the shifter for the 4wd not the transmission from top to bottom is 2hi(full forward) 4hi, N, 4lo(all the way pulled back) my shifter is in the "N" position and I pull backwards once(cant go more than that) or from "N" I would only have 2 places to push it forward which is going into 4hi then 2hi but it will not go past "N"

My email is lowslung92@gmail.com keep an eye out. I'm going to send you my phone number as well because I don't know how to make myself sound anymore clearer than what I have yet it seems that everyone is understanding but not. I'd rather just talk on the phone about it.
