" it just takes like 8 seconds for the 4low to engage"

i waited though for awhile and both lights went out the truck acted like it was still in 4 wheel but both lights werent on. if i was in 4 low i would be able to go faster than 10-12 withouth high revs and i went 40 the way home doing 1100 rpms.



what switch are u talking about? becuase my 4 hi and 4 low are the same package just two different buttons

That's what I'm saying, the 4 wheel drive switch may be going out.
