But once it's in and you see the green 4wd symbol on the bottom left of your dash....that means you have power going to all 4 wheels...hence the 4wd. Now you can go mash and catch those jack rabbits or do pro 4 wheel drifts!!! lol...btw you don't have to push the clutch in when shifting in or out of 4wd.

4 Low is when you are going up really steep hills or rock crawling....You should be at a dead stop when you shift it into 4 Lo...( take the smaller shifter again and from 2wd shift down, to the right, and up. Careful mashing on it...because 1st gear ends at about 5-8mph.

Now if you want to know about the locker....if you have one thats a different story and I don't feel like typing on it.

dude he has a different year truck so most of the stuff you just told him is going to confuse him when he tries to use it. i have the exact same truck but a manual, there's a button on the small shifter for 4 high and the shifter goes either up or down one notch for 4 low. and the green indicator light is in the bottom right of the dash
