    Default Shifting into 4W drive

    Need advice from you Chevy owners...
    the floor mounted shifter is kind of stiff shifting into 4WD.
    (I'm assuming you can shift on the fly ?)
    any trick with this, or just put some muscle in it ?

    What year truck? I suggest that you crawl under the truck and spray the shift linkage at the transfercase down with some PBlaster. It should make a world of difference? You can shift between 4wd high and 2wd while on the fly. For 4 low you usually need to be rolling under 5mph with the trans in neutral, then shift into 4 low or back to 2wd from 4 low. I would check your manual for your truck and see what it says about 4 low
