    My 98 ram 1500 4x4 auto, works fine in 4 high whenever I don't hit a bump or anything. But it pops out constantly when I'm 4 wheeling on the trails. However, 4 low has no problems at all?? whats wrong with my ram?

    Is the shifter actually popping out of 4HI or does the shifter stay put and you lose 4WD ?

    If the shifter pops out,it may be an internal transfer case problem.If you losing 4WD and the shifter stays put,then it's a vacuum problem or the 4WD actuator

    The whole shifter

    for example, I put it in 4 high, its moved about 20 feet, and then its in 2 wheel drive the lever bumped to 2 wheel drive

    Like CARDOCTOR said,check and make sure nothing is interfering and that it's going fully into gear.If it is,then you have a problem in the transfer case.It will have to be opened up and inspected to see whats wrong.
