    I have a 78 k10 blazer and the 4w high works but the 4w lo will not work. Does anyone know what could be wrong? :confused:

    many reasons...

    To get better gas mileage by reducing drag,and to save wear on all the axles,bearings,u-joints,and front end gears spinning all summer long during freeway driving for nothing..makes steering easier too..basically it makes it more like a NP205 case..2wd is just turning the rear shaft only,not both.. :crazy:
