4Lo spins your tires at a slower speed and is designed to put more of your torque to the ground. 4hi is designed more for regular driving, high speed and mud. I mostly use 4lo when I get stuck to see if it helps pull me out, or in a really steep hill climb where I don't want wheel spin I want grip. I use 4hi the most for blasting down dirt roads, snow, sand, mud, then 4lo when I get stuck in mud, gnarly hill climbs and rock crawling. 4lo is also great for getting your boat up the ramp out of the water. But don't drive far like that.
And yes Gearhead299 did clarify what I was saying. By locking in my hubs you turn the axle basically into a live axle, and when you need it can engage the transfer case resulting in 4wd. Makes life awesome. I hated the auto hubs because they broke, but they were awesome for convienance.
