How do I shift between 4WD and 2WD?

It’s easy to shift between four-wheel drive (4WD) and two-wheel drive (2WD) in your car. Here’s how.

  1. Slow your vehicle to a crawl (preferably 1-3 mph).

  2. Shift your transmission into neutral.

  3. Turn the transfer control case (the shifter that controls 2WD and 4WD) into its desired position.

  4. Put the vehicle back in gear.
