Another possible strategy, if road conditions get bad in a hurry, is ... umm ... slowing down? Just sayin'

I had a situation this week where I got the azz end buried in a pasture and went to 4 lock and nothing? I then proceed to go to neutral then 4 low and she eased right on out of that hole. I guess if the rears are spinning then it doesn't want to kick into 4 lock? I also am not used to electronic transfer cases as I noticed how it took it's sweet little time shifting into 4 low. Reguardless though this 14 was a beast in low.......Really need to get out and learn the capabilities and functions of our trucks guys, Im coming from a 06 Superduty and it's weird having no solid front axle or locking hubs.......

Its better to shift into 4wd before you get stuck because the t-case has an easier time shifting into 4wd if you are rolling slowly. If everything isn't meshed up just right the computer can refuse the shift.
