High range rpm goes up to 8500 full throttle then instantly drops to 7000 rpm. Low range goes up to 7500 rpm then instantly drops to 5500 rpm. This makes for a tough time in the deep snow. Any suggestions this just started!

I believe you're hitting the rev limiter and when you get off it, you're back down to 7000 or so.

Try keeping your rpm to about 8300 RPM and see if that makes a difference.

Yes, in heavy snow, you have what it takes to have real "Four Wheel Drive". The rears are slipping some, the Hilliard front diff locks up. If the rear wheels continue to spin, chugging forward in the snow, the front diff can stay locked. So if you just stomp on the gas in heavy snow, you're going to get to redline RPM off and on until you get out of the heavy snow.

This will be one of the things you just have to learn how to manage RPM to keep rolling.

Just sayin'
