try backing up a little, but also you have to back STRAIGHT up. dont ask me why, but mine is a pain in the *** at times to get it out of 4x4 also. if you find something else, please let us know...

My E99 is that way too. Back straight up or it just won't let go.

yeah, i found out the hard way the very 1st time i locked in my hubs on my 01. i was in vermont, left to come back to pa and the dang thing felt like the front end was riding rough. little did i know, with the hubs locked out and the switch in the 2 wheel drive postion, the hubs never unlocked! guess i never really had to back up the whole way home, so it made sense! live and learn, right?

The transfer case that he has in his truck is electrical shift in and out and when we put it in it goes in just fine with lockin the hubs in and when you take them out and back up the hubs release but the t case doesnt shift out when you switch it out.

Mine had been like this since new. I have to force myself to slow down when taking it out of 4X4. I back up on a level road. Then I stop completely. Put the transmission in neutral. Let off the brake and turn the 4X4 selector to 2wheel drive. I have had several customers with this same problem and this has always worked.....

IMO, the electric switch is a joke. I don't know what is so hard about reaching down to pull a lever but i guess it's to complicated for most. yes my pickup has it. but it's going away pretty soon. and if it's really cold out, ie. 5* F or lower. it will not engage or disengage. it pretty much locks up the actuator.

you have to swap the whole t/c and a short wiring harness. There is actually already a hole in the floor pan. it has a cover plate that is screwed down and has the nastiest glue on it. you need a chisel and a BFH to get the plate off.
and i do like my 6 speed.
