4x4 question

This is my first post, just joined, sorry if this may have been posted in the past.

I went to put my 06 Ranger FX4 into 4x4 high last night and it would not immediately go into it. I drove about a quarter mile and it went into 4x4.

I am not sure if the cold effected it and it had to warm up, etc.

Being concerned, and being that the rodes were very messy, I put the 4x4 to the test both yesterday and today. Between last night and today I put the truck into 4x4 H and 4x4 L quite frequently, and each time I did so it worked fine.

Should I get this checked out, or should I just wait and see if it is a problem again down the road? Can the cold in fact effect this system?

Sorry if these are dumb questions but I am not mechanically inclined and will continue to post questions that will have obvious answers to others.

If there's warranty left, I would take it in and make them look at it. Otherwise, if one wheel was spinning, it will not lock in until that wheel stops. I've had that happen before too.
