Thanks for that!

If I could go back and rephrase my question I would!

Really I guess that is what I wanted to know.What is a safe speed to switch it.

My math good needs better!

You can go from 2WD to 4Auto or 4WD or any combination of these 3 at any speed as long front and rears are going the same speed.

Can do it with anything with a central axle disconnect, or the manual hubs are in. Lot of people still believe 4wd is only a slow speed thing.
