To shift into 4 low you want to be just rolling along at 1-2 mph.
To shift to 4 high, you just shift like any other shift on my Dana 300 T-case.
In the winter I leave my hubs locked which costs me 1-2 mpg if I expect snow. Then when I see snow coming, I just drop the clutch and pop it into 4 high and keep on going. See dry coming, I do the opposite, and drop to 2 high. On long intersection corners, 4 high can get up on top and plow straight same for highway ramps, so I drop to 2 high for the turn if it starts getting up on top, then back to 4 high as soon as I am out of it.
We were running at 50-55 mph yesterday on the highway in 4 high.
I have been driving it like this since 97 every winter with no issues at all.
I 'do' clean the linkage parts up and spray them with white lithium grease to keep them moving every couple years.
