Default 2002 SLT Drivetrain questions

Can someone please help? I just purchased a 2002 Dodge Durango 4.7 SLT and I am not sure if I am supposed to drive it in AWD, 4HI, or 4LO? Those are the only options I have on the dash. I've been researching but nothing really clear. Also, how do I know if it is RWD or AWD?

your truck is AWD it says so on the dash shifter

you should drive it in AWD, 4hi is for low traction situations (snow, mud ect) and 4lo is for low traction situations where you need extra torque (pulling a boat out of the water for example)

live in NJ?

+1 SS.

AWD at all speeds/daily driving.

4Hi under 50MPH-ish in very poor traction situations.

4Lo under 10MPH (even under 5MPH) for emergency (get out of a ditch)/tow times (pull a boat a few feet, pull a stump out of the ground, etc.)
