4x4 on the fly

Hey everyone im new to the xterra. But so far i love mine its a 2004 5 speed manual with a pml and 265/75/16 duratracs with only 55000 on the odometer.
I was wondering are you able to shift it into 4 wheel high while you are going down the road.

The back of your drivers side visor should have all the 4x4 info listed on it.

But to answer your question I believe you can shift into 4Hi under 35 mph.

Yes you can I've done it on trails when I come to a slick muddy spot. But I wouldn't do it at anything more than a slow trail speed. If your X is like mine it doesn't have anything on the visors about the 4wd like mentioned above.

Garage
I tried getting into 4lo once at about 5 mph and the thing made a horrible grinding noise so I immediately gave up on that and have never tried again. I have went into 4hi a couple of times at around 30mph with no issue, but I still usually stop and but the truck in park or neutral before swapping into 4hi or lo.

Apply dirt liberally, rinse and repeat

If you look in the owners manual it will tell you what is ok and what is not. I very recently got a 2001 SE and the owners manual says anything under 25mph you are ok to go to 4H. And after you go back to 2H to disengage the autolock hubs by traveling in the opposite direction in 2H for 7-10 feet.
