The only reason I hesitated to put mine into 4wd low this time is last year, it wouldn't go back into 2wd when I was done. Turns out it was a vacuum actuator malfunction, but I had to drive it in 4wd low on dry pavement to get it fixed. I tested it after they fixed it, and it seemed to go in and out just fine, but this was the first time I had to use it since that incident and I was having flashbacks. As it turns out, it worked just fine.metalmountain wrote:... I just think you are doing your vehicle a favor by throwing into the lowest gear possible and not beating the crap out of it. 4wd (especially 4wd low) also gear things down so you don't have to ride your brakes all the way down the road. Which is one of the biggest reason I will throw mine in 4low even when its not needed for traction.
Ahhh makes sense...I had a scare with mine a while back not wanting to get back into 2wd. SCR isn't all that bad in the gran scheme of roads around this state, but there is a reason I take my 4runner up and not may daily driver
