    ok there are three options in 4x4 mode. 2WD, 4WD(high), 4WD(LOW).
    2wd: Normal driving (city, highway and even rough terrain softroading)
    4wd(high): Slippery conditions, steep hills and climbs. Basically for better traction. all 4 wheels are driving and ur car will still be running like in 2wd though fuel consumption may increase.
    4wd(low): Heavy offroading. pulling heavy cargo. rough terrains. if ur stuck

    heres the general layout of the 4wd gear. down (2wd), slide it up (neutral), slide it to the right(4wd high), slide it up(4wd low). Its better u engage ur main gear to neutral, switch to the desired 4wd option and then change gears. same goes for diengaing the 4wd gear. the 4wd can also be engaged when the vehical is moving at low speed but its better u stop the car.

    Actually I dont have my own Vigo but I use to drive my Office (GOVT) Vigo. So dont rememeber much but I think when u slide it back from 2H then its 4H. From here push toward right and then forward, it is Neutral and then move it forward once again so it is 4L. And please note that Im talking about Pakistan assembled Vigo, so please wait for more replies of expert. U can also watch 4wd Indication inside ur dashboard panel, whenever 4x4 is engaged.

    The Vigo must have come with a User / Owner's manual ? or you purchased it used 2nd hand ? - Ask raza1 for user/owner's manual for the Hilux 4x4 he will email to you. Good Luck
