Maybe I am just an idiot, but my 4WD doesn't work in 3rd gear, 2nd, nor 1st. Is something wrong or can I NOT run it in lower gears? Works fine in drive, but just not the lower gears.

its either engaged or not, jack the truck up on all 4 and test it out. are you spinning in the snow or something?

I went up a muddy hill in 4wd (both auto and lock) while in drive and was able to go uphill.

I tried the same thing again, but in 3rd gear, but I slipped. The 2 front wheels did not spin.

I tried the same thing again, but in 2nd gear, and I also slipped. 2 front wheels did not engage.

How does 4wd engage in normal drive gear, but not 3rd, or 2nd?

Ill bet your 4x4 doesnt work at all, and you got lucky and got up the hill in 2wd. Do some more investigating in the 4x4.

I tried it again. Same thing. 4wd in D works, but not in 3rd, 2nd, or low.

I tried them all in auto and lock, and still the same outcome.:(
