    The 208 is a part time, and when you want to run in 4wd you should lock the hubs and then when you want to engage you shift into 4wd, if you run with th hubs unlocked and engage 4wd you shouldn't have a problem but I have had some wear on my axles doing that.

    - Part Time
    and whats the right way to engage the 4X4 ?
    - pull lever back and lock hubs (if manual). if low than put i neutral before pulling lever back.
    can i leave the hubs locked and run in 2 hi or do i need to
    unlock and lock when i use 4x4?
    - yes, but you shouldn't, that will cause there to be drag in the front drive line.
