You're supposed to be rolling when shifting into 4lo 3-5 mph. Did you damage it by driving in 4lo on dry pavement ...who knows did you drive over 20 mph ? Turn hard ? Try and spin the wheels ?

Re: 4X4 question

Its always hard to say that a car is good without seeing/hearing/trying it.
Just try it again on a non paved road. I almost never used mine in 4-Lo, so canīt say anything about the shifting. But when it shifts smoothly in 4-All time, i would say that the tranny is ok.
