Can you switch into 4wd on the fly ?? for example, If your climbing a dune and you know your not going to make it, can you switch into 4wd ?? Or. . . . do you have to slow down to a certain speed or certain RPM ??? OR. . . .is it just not reccomended. . . . .

outlanders and commanders can shift in and out of 4wheel drive if no throttle acceleration, assume so can mavericks, can shift in and out uphill and downhill as long as no throttle, do all time never a problem, manual will tell you not to do it

Even if you are in 2 wd and have it floored. Than switch it to 4 wd drive the computer will not switch it in 2 wd till you let off the throttle . Although I never tried it going up a hill or when my rear tires where spinning I have tried it going down logging roads at a constant speed.
