4-low disengages

Hey guys I got an 03 sport 4.0 auto with only 22,000 miles on it right now and I had a question since I am still a "noob" since I just got her 6months ago and barely getting into off roading. Idk if this is normal or not but recently I did a 4" suspension with some 33's and I tried testing her out on a steep hill soo I put it in 4 low and when she starts climbing it disengages by itself but the 4 hi works perfect. I basically need to know if it's a normal thing or I need to go get it checked or something, help me out guys I really appreciate it.

Probably just need to adjust the transfer case shifter linkage.

Yeah, not a hard fix. It also might help if you are rolling just a wee bit when putting it in 4lo
