Read the owners manual. There is a very specific sequence. My uncle did the same thing. Drove it 60 miles to me in 4 low. We got the owners manual out of the glove box, followed the procedure and presto. Done. Seems like it might have had to be in park with the brake on? Can't remember exactly, but it was very specific. And it worked first time.

just have to pop the transmission in neutral sitting still and flip it to 2x4. That should do it unless something in wrong with it like shift solenoid in the Tcase

Oops, haven't done that in a while, thread from the dead....I imagine it's unstuck by now...
