(4) When the MODE button is pressed, MODE ON will illuminate in the LED display.
If the vehicle is stopped; the LED display will illuminate 5 MODE ON 2, indicating that
the transmission is in 2nd gear and there are five forward gears available. This off-road
mode is useful if road or load conditions require the use of a lower gear range for
maximum torque. The vehicle must be completely stopped and engine operating at idle
speed before the transmission will allow you to shift from a forward gear to Reverse (R)
(5) The transmission may include an electrically controlled PTO (8). The PTO provides
power to a hydraulic pump, which powers the 11K Self-Recovery Winch (SRW) (if
equipped). The transmission will not shift from Neutral (N) if the PTO is engaged and
the winch switch is in the on position.
c. Transfer Case. The transfer case (3) contains the gears and clutches that provide the
transmission (2) with the seventh gear. The transfer case delivers power from the
transmission to the front driveshaft and rear driveshaft. In normal driving conditions, the
transfer case splits the output torque of the transmission, providing 70 percent of the
torque to the rear and 30 percent to the front. In 1st gear, or any time MODE ON is
illuminated in LED display, the output torque of the transmission is split evenly between
front and rear.
