It relieves the tension on the drivetrain. I would keep an eye on that motor tho. Afaik
the last generation of rangers (99 or y2k and newer) shouldn't need to have this done tho. The front axle is a live axle and constantly turning. The transfer case is what prevents any power being distributed to it.
Previous trucks had those vacumn hubs that would require you to back up.
I've never needed to put my 08 in reverse to disengage the 4wd system.
My 85 bronk with locking hubs required me to back up 20 feet to release tension.
