2 wd FJ 2008 Transfer Case Lever (short)

I'll start again:
I called a Toyota service dept., and asked them to consider the following scenario and answer my questions:

Vehicle: FJ Cruiser 2008, 5 speed auto, two-wheel drive with limited slip differential (LSD).

The short transfer case shifter handle near the longer automatic gear shifter handle shows positions 2H and 4H, N (Neutral) and 4L. Normally, it is in the 2H position.

My Questions to Toyota Service:
If I engage the LSD and shift the short transfer case shifter handle to 4H, how many wheels are "driving" ("pulling")?
Service's Answer: Four

How many wheels are driving when the LSD is disengaged?
Service's answer: Four ( they seemed to ignore the LSD)???

Does the reader agree with the Service answer or not, and if not, why not?

What does that short lever do when a TJ 2wd has the rear differential load distribution system (push button electronic).

The short lever shows 2H and 4H and a Neutral and 2L and 4L??

What happens if the short lever is put in 4H?? Is the FJ in front-wheel drive and the left rear wheel is driving?? Three wheels driving??

With the rear differential load distribution system engaged via the push-button are four wheels driving?
Are you talking about a Jeep in the beginning and then a Toyota, or just Toyota throughout? The TJ is a Jeep. But T is not that far from F on the keyboard, so please clarify.

Re: 2 wd FJ 2008 Transfer Case Lever (short)

I'm gonna' try real hard to be nice since this is your first post......

WTF are you talkin' about dude???????

Everything you wrote contridicts the sentence before it......

The "short" lever is the shifter for your 4WD....so that kills the 2wd comment

The "load distribution system (push button electronic)" I will assume is the rear locker button.

The markings on the "short" shifter are as follows:

4L....4WD low gear set
4H...4WD normal gear set
2H is normal 2WD
2L.....????????? on an FJ???????
neutral is just what it says....Neutral.

Please clarify what you want to know...i don't want to confuse you any more then you already are....

To: Mr. Bigaxe, Kramer, and homedad,
I apologize for my technical mistakes and the poor way I originally explained the scenario.

Please see the latest edit of the original.

I appreciate your help.

Re: 2 wd FJ 2008 Transfer Case Lever (short)

can you take a picture of your center console, including the short transfer case shifter and the LSD button?
I think Santa brought you a 4 wheel drive.

Are you sure the LSD is a button and not something you took? 2WD with a transfer case shifter that also has 2L?

Sorry but you still make no sense what so ever. You start by asking about a 2 wheel drive, then talk about a short shifter with 2H, 4H Netural and 4L. Like others have said your talking about a FOUR WHEEL VEHICLE, NOT a Two wheel vehicle.
