Were you slowly rolling when you tried? You gotta put a solid brisk pull on it when rolling...especially the first few times.

Strange....hope they get it figured out. I had to pull hard into 4wd the first few times...almost to the point that I felt like I was gonna break it.(I'm 6'3" 210 lbs...no chance my wife could get it in 4wd)
Mine was the same. In fact it popped out into neutral the first couple of times. It got the message! Three other brand new 4 x 4 trucks and had the same difficulty getting into 4wd the first few times.

With no sarcasm or disdain - I wouldn't trust a dealer to know how to expertly operate the vehicle. Heck, when I test drove a manual Wrangler, the salesperson let me do all the driving and parking everywhere - I got the feeling he wasn't a regular stick driver.

I had a coupla hundred miles on the odometer when I tried to muscle my Wrangler in 4H, and yeah, I thought I was gonna break it, too. But like Steve Winwood says you gotta "Roll with It".

I have to have new transfer case installed. Dealer has had it for week- at least I have loner. Still, unfortunate for a car with less than 3k miles. Glad it’s not winter.
