    Ya don't really have to back up 10 ft, but i always try to make it habit to back a few then pull forward and this is actually only when i unlock my hubs, i do this to try to make sure all tension is released from them and they actually unlock before i hit pavement. As far as the t-case goes, no need.

    If you still have auto hubs then you should back up at least 10 feet to make sure they're disengaged. After that throw them in the trash and get some manuals! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif To shift into 4hi, just let off the gas and yank the handle. To shift into 4lo, stop the truck, put tranny in neutral, then shift into 4lo.

    Tip: If you are in 4hi and want to go to 4lo, after the tranny is in neutral, it is easier to shift all the way to 2hi then bring it back in one smooth motion to 4lo. Did that make sense? /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
