4W Low

I just purchased a used 2010 JK Wrangler Unlimited Mountain with Auto transmission and vehicle did not have a owners manual. My question: how do I engage 4W Low? The illustration shows to slide lever to right and pull towards self to engage but shifter seems to get stuck half way. I am able to engage in 4W High. I can't recall if vehicle needs to be rolling to engage or do I just force it.

Any thoughts or suggestions????

Download a pdf manual for your vehicle.
On the left side of the page under "Vehicle Information" select the "Owner/Service Manuals". You can download manuals for any Jeep '04 and newer.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

That doesn't help you if your Jeep is pre-2004. I have a '91 XJ with the same problem. I don't think its a matter of procedure...I believe it's a mechanical problem like the linkage or something. I've been trying to find a solution to this prob and I'm getting nowhere.

I'm still blown away that somebody lost the owners manual for a 2010 vehicle.

shifting into 4lo is an issue ive seen before with rough country t-case drop kits supplied with their base lifts...i dont believe the OP has anything like this installed on his tho but it leads me to believe its a linkage problem

and X2 on what mdm said, download the manual, i did it, put it on a usb drive and now me and all my buddies can use it where ever we're workking on our wranglers as long as their is a computer around, not to mention the manual was something like 2500 pages long, definitly cheaper and easier to have a usb drive with it instead of carrying around a book the size of the yellow pages, lol
