Thanks for all the help guys! I'm going to post some pictures of what the 40 looks like these days! She's come a pretty good way and a lot of it is thanks to all the help I've gotten here! So a few questions, can someone school me on the split T-case? I've read that you should be able to keep your hubs locked and shift to 4Hi on the fly... while moving.. is that true? I always thought you had to stop, which is what I've always done.

You can shift into 4WD high on the fly. For peace of mind try shifting in and out of High while going at slow speeds and work up from there.


You must be stoped in order to shift into 4WD low unless you like to hear gears grinding violently.

By locking the hubs, you are spinning the entire front drive train - so when you engage 4WD, you're engaging a spinning gear with another spinning gear (both of which are going the same speed). With the hubs locked, it's shift on the fly (into high range).
