Default 2010 Ram 4x4 operation

I am supposed to be able to shift from 4hi to 4lo at or below 5mph. When turn the knob (electronic transfer case) it just flashes. I have to put it in park, and then neutral and it will lock into low. What am I doing wrong?

You need to be under 5 mph and in neutral to shift into low range. Same applies for shifting back into hi range.

Default Also 3 inch lift

Now, another quicky... what is this I hear about a wobble if I put a 3 inch coil top spacer on my truck to level it? I see many well liked 4x4 companies selling them.... I have ordered a 3/2 lift and now I am wondering if I am going to regret it.

Default Suspension Maxx

Suspension Maxx. This is a Anaheim based company with really good reputation. It is the 2.5 inch billet mount on top of the strut.

Make sure you get an alignment done after the install. Ask for a copy of the before and after measurements so you can be sure caster, camber and toe were all set correctly.

Default One more question....

Whey is there a Neutral button on the switch. I can not get it to go into neutral? Here is my lift pick I just finished a few days ago.

its not a button its a light, you have to shift truck into neutral, turn to 4 low, wait for your dash to say 4 low, then put it back into gear
