It sounds like you aren't shifting correctly. It is necessary to come to a completely stop, put the transmission into neutral, and then shift the transfer case into 4-lo.

and do the same to leave 4lo.

That is unless the range fork is bad in the transfer case. I've seen it before.DAN THE TRANS MAN

Answerthis guy is full of it if the forks were messed up it wouldn't even shift into four wheel high smoothly it would bind and grind and might not even go, I agree with the first guy about you shifting sequence. Answermaybe a bad synchronizer in the transfer case
