Hey guys, I was wondering if anyone has had an issue with their 4 low engaging? When I turn the **** to 4hi, it engages no problem. When I turn it to 4low, there is no noise and the light on my dash does not illuminate. Please let me know if you guys have had a similar problem.

I have the same issue. You have shift-on-the-fly 4x4, correct? Mine has it as well. Strangely my Ram 1500 requires that you come to a full stop, shift into neutral, then shift from 4HI to 4LO and then shift back into drive. On my Ram I have the manual transfer case. Maybe Ford's electronic transfer case is different. I have tested my 4HI and it works well. Do you have access to the owner's manual? My vehicle never came with one when I purchased it.

I realize this, but even when I am standing still with tranny in neutral, it does not engage. It is quite annoying. Thanks for the feedback, keep it coming.
is your foot on the brake? I was on the beach and the sand had stopped me and I was trying to put it in 4x4 low without pressing the brake, needless to say i felt dumb when i finally got it by pressing the brake.
and just a recap:
1. Foot on break
2. Truck in neutral
3. Turn **** to 4L
4. hear engagement, light comes on
5. Put back into drive, truck will lurch forward, ready to go
6. Don't get stuck!
