4x4 is meant to be used on slippery surfaces. If you use it on dry, hard tar roads, it will cause more wear on your drivetrain. You can shift in and out of 4x4 anytime, as long as you are not spinning the tires. You can not shift in or out of 4x4 low, unless you are stopped, in Nuetral, and with your foot on the brake. Assuming it is electric shift.

you can shift at any speed, I always try to do it stopped or at least slowed down... I think its easier on things... my 2000 150 would pop once in a while when you would try to lock it in while moving, but it was most likely due to some slipping... Never had any issues with it working, or locking in on on that truck...

now my 06 superduty... the 4x4 vacuum system on that thing is like a POED women... u never know what your gonna get when you push the button!
