Chance is that you will break something.
I'm now wondering if this is how I snapped my front axle shaft earlier this year. I can't remember for sure, but I wouldn't doubt that I was temporarily stopped on a hill climb with a very nasty rut directly underneath me. I know to get up, I'd cut the wheel in one direction to avoid going into it. I could have stopped mid-way, with wheels turned all the way. Then, when I went to give it gas to move...*POP*.

Hmmmm......

Thanks all for the responses! Yes, it was on pavement, ha. It's my first 4x4, so I had no idea what is and isn't expected behavior. Thanks for all the information, it was very helpful and good to know the 4wd actually works, ha! I'll wait until it snows up here in the northeast before using the 4wd again.

That's true! There's some fire trails near me I've been meaning to check out and a dirt road up to a radio tower on the top of a mountain. Both perfect candidates for my complete lack of off roading experience, ha!

J/K, you did a better job of explaining it than I would have.
You certainly did, good sir.
