    In theory, as long as there is no slippage between the front & rear drivelines, you can put it in auto 4wd at any speed

    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.
