Op as others stated, on the fly is fine.

Also I don't understand 4 wheel drive in rain, but I guess too each his own.

And if there us snow in the road I'm in 4 wheel drive, until I hit salted streets that are just wet, silly to me not to use it if there is snow. Yes, I could probably be ok in 2 wheel drive, but I don't have anything to prove to anyone, so I'm going to use it.

If you want to ask the experts consult the owners manual. Yes you can, below 62 mph.

it needs to be in perfect sync, otherwise you need to move the truck to sync it
or try again. this is not a flaw, it is a fact of the particular system

if they designed it to engage always no matter what, go ahead and add $2000 to
the price of the truck because you'd need a re-engineered tranny and xfer case

and in fact it does always engage, you just need to be a) moving and b) changing speed and not constant accel

When the weather is bad I have to be in 4hi to get up my driveway (balding tires and gravel; avoiding ripping the gravel up). I have always put in the clutch shifted to 4hi slowly let out and when I get to the top do the same thing

I figured I would ask the experts...

When switching into 4WD (HI), what do you usually do?

4HI in the rain.

You all sound like a friend of mine who puts it into 4HI when it sprinkles because it "makes him feel safer"

The only time I used 4HI on the pavement was when I was in the snow from my sig.

I've never had issues with a 2wd in the rain driving responsibly.
This times infinity. I used to shake my head at all the 4x4's in the ditch during the first heavy snow as I passed by in my lowered Mustang.

It's clear that it pisses you off, and that you doubt it's unusual.

Seriously though it sometimes takes me a couple extra switching back and forth for it to engage also.

Never tried it while moving yet.

i usually do it when moving. some times if iím stopped and i know i may need it or iím going up a gravel hill that i may spin on i will go a head and put it in. but i donít put it in neutral. i have done it up to 40 and not had any problems. i think it says in the Manuel you go do it up to 60 or 65mph.
