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.
https://www.jeep.com//hostb/crossbrand/owners/en/
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.

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
