hi I have a Suzuki vitara 1999 and want to learn how to use the 4wd system tidy. When I put it in to 4l the truck sounds different and much slower so im assuming that its in 4wd, but when im putting in to 4h it doesn't make the same sound just woundering if I have got to lock out the front diff because I have some sort of locking thing on the front wheels but don't now if I have got to use that. Please help

The subject of 'How to use the 4WD system' has been posted on here time and again... search through the forum and you will find it! First rule, don't engage 4x4 on the move, stop and then engage 4x4 on the transfer shifter and then 'Locked' on the manual hubs.

About the manual locking hubs, yes they need to be in the 'Locked' position to use the 4WD using all 4 wheels. The 2 positions on the hub switch should say 'Locked' and 'Free'. Set Locked for off road and set Free for on road. Simples!  Very Happy
