Can you guys help me out in a pinch. I do not have access to the manual otherwise I would look it up myself. I have a Rubicon and was wondering if it hurts the machine shifting into 4wd while moving, or on the fly as they say.

On the fly is fine. Just be aware that it will not shift into 4wd if the tires are moving at different speeds front to back, or if there is a load on the drive train. If will only shift if there is no strain on it. That is Honda's way of protecting the components.

Should you not go above a certain speed while operating in FWD? Or, in other words, is there a recommended speed restriction while operating in 4WD? Maybe a rule of thumb?

Ride it like normal, the machine is designed to operate that way.
