From my research, the v8 AWD mounty uses the same transfer case as the Explorer, but 4x4 low is disabled in software. I read it is possible to enable the 4x4 low with forscan? Someone did it for a later year STA.

Pretty unlikely, I think. Because AWD must have provision to be driven with freedom of rotational speed differences between front and rear wheels. Use of the typical 4X4 case with electronic clutch could provide 4X4 AUTO, but only yield RWD when clutch was OFF. Not suitable IMY for reasonable production vehicle operation.

4X4 LOW is easiest disable of all. No power to LOW drive motor, or, no wire to feed it. imp

Could have sworn I saw a shift motor on the TC. And I have to find the post where someone explains it. I know the v6 and v8 have different AWD T/Cs
