LRII 2001, 4x4 transmission auto,constant wheel drive confussion

Hi all,
As you know the 4x4 gear stick has two range, up for (L)ow rang, centre for (N)eutral on down for (H)igh rang
I can only drive if either the sick in in Hi or Low, is this normal? when
engaged in (N)eutral position and the select the Drive( 4th Gear) the car dose not go,
My other 4x4 Suzuki i had the option in disengaging off the 4x4 by leaving it in Neutral for normal and 2xwheel city driving.
Yet this land rover seems to want to select constant 4x wheel drive either high( manual suggest this is to be selected for normal road use or dirt terrain) or low.
Im thinking that this land rover II 2001,is constant all wheel drive even, which i do not want I prefer city driving only 2xwheel drive.
Is this normal, how can i fix the problem, is this really constant all wheel driver High range, this would cost me allot in fuel, any advise

This is normal - Neutral=No drive, same as in a normal gearbox.

This is normal. All Landrovers since the early eighties have been full time four wheel drive. This adds a little to fuel costs, but if this is a serious concern and you are doing mostly city driving you would be better advised to get a two wheel drive car. Even in city driving full time four wheel drive gives surer handling in slippery conditions, making wheelspin much less likely.

That's normal and why it's called 'Neutral' :)

That's fine, "Neutral" means "no gear", the stick you are using is a second gearbox, called the "transfer box", and it has two gears, "High" and "low". If you put it into neutral, then it is like your main gearbox being in neutral.

The LRII is different, it is always in 4x4 mode, this is normal for road driving in the LRII.

You do not need to worry about that with the LRII.

It is normal, only way to fix is to sell the vehicle and buy your suzuki again!
