Shift into 4wd?

Hi my name is Dan and im new to the forum. I just purchased a 2007 Jeep Liberty Sport. I was wondering do you know can I shift in 4wd drive (high) while i'm parked? I read the manual and it said you can do it while moving but was wondering if I could do it in park? You know say I wake up and find out we got 3' of snow or something and I need to get out..

Thanks for the help

Welcome to JF

Do you have select trac (2Hi - 4 full time - 4 part time - N - 4 Lo) or
Command trac ( same thing but no 4 full time mode) ?

Just went through Duluth a couple of months back.

I have the Select trac I believe. So if I go out to my vehicle and i'm just totally stuck and unable to get it to move at all should I just shift into 4low instead. Which is better to shift into when you're completely stopped 4H or 4lo. Thanks for the help.

Duluth is nice this time of year. Very warm for September.
