You should be able to shift into 4HI "on the fly." This means that at any reasonable speed, you can shift into 4x4. To shift into 4LO, you need to be stopped with the trans shifter in neutral. Then push the shifter into 4LO. If it doesn't want to go in, try letting the truck roll (in neutral) a couple feet and try again.
