since this thread is here, whats the max speed in 4LO? Like blawkdawg said i have also been in 4th gear in 4lo...just wondering if that would cause any damage? Wish I had an owners manual for my 97.

The manual posted above also says that 4HI can be used on wet roads...I thought 4wd on the road was a huge no-no unless there is snow/ice?

In my experience you can go any speed in high and low gear. Not sure why you would need to go fast in either range though.

If the road is wet enough to allows tires to slip, so there isn't binding or difficulty turning, the 4WD on wet roads works... but use it only if you need the extra traction (or to keep the parts lubed for a few miles).

Low Range is a lower gear ratio for crawling with max. power/ min. speed... unless you like to red line your engine, there is a limit to how fast you can go in low range. Use it for steep, bad grades and crossing deep mud or deep snow where extra torque/ power is helpful.
