My very first truck was a Dodge 1979 Sno-Commander. It was full time 4WD.
That's why my husband called it back then. We never had to do anything to
put it into 4WD.
He since passed on and I finally had to sell that truck and I bought a
Dodge 2003 1500, with 4WD. Except you have to shift the transfer case into
4WD when you need it. I only need 4WD for plowing my driveway. Fairly
flat/level driveway. I have no problems plowing.
Is there any difference between 4WD-H and 4WD-L on the transfer case shift
lever? I know that one is used for intance if you're already out driving
on the road and want to shift into 4WD.
My question is - do both the H and L perform the same thing when the truck
is in 4WD?
Another question is why is there some tire spinning/slipping when I'm
navigating a sharp turn from the back of the garage around to the side
garage? (in driveway on paved surface). The truck is barely moving because
it's a tight turn. My 1979 never did any tire spinning. Do they make 4WD
trucks weaker than they used to?
The last question is while driving on a stone/dirt road that is just at the
start of driving up a mountain near a ski resort in the Finger Lakes in
NY......I began in 2WD and felt it needed 4WD. I put it in 4WD, but it
kept popping out and into N. I finally had to cram it in 4WD and keep
holding it while driving up and up for about 2 miles before I got to my
friend's house. Then it was another .25 mile up their driveway. Is that a
common thing that the gears won't engage? Actually my GrandAm navigates
that road better than the truck.
