I grant that there will be more wear since parts will be under load but I have never, in my 2 decades of off-roading, experienced a drivetrain binding up to the point that parts broke while driving in 4WD, on asphalt, in a straight line, in excess of 10 miles.

Physics mang. No infinite coefficient exists, only finite possibilities. Jones and Childers reports on coefficients of friction reflect to average approximately 0.7 for dry roads. On dry surfaces you might get as high as 0.9 as a coefficient of friction. In the posed situation, it would likely not to any substantial harm to a 4WD system. But damage is possible.

So, here's what I gathered from this thread

You can only drive in 4wd on pavement if you were born gay, and it is raining outside.

If there's a straight stretch, and its sunny, you can engage 4LO, but only while driving 70mph or above, and you must be straight (by choice).

If you were born straight, then changed sexual preference to be gay, but then changed back to being straight due to some religious fanaticism, you can then use 4wd on dry pavement, but only while reversing into a handicapped parking spot.

If you choose to be born gay, then you can use 4wd anytime/anywhere, but you have to be reading the Bible.

If you were chosen to be born straight, then you can drive in 4wd on dirt roads or cobblestone, but only on Sunday. shomer Shabbat

Just wanted to make sure I got it right before I choose to drive my truck in 4wd.

Do not engage differentials unless they both agree on the terrain being mutually desirable. If the terrain is not preferable to like differentials keep them separate. It's all about choice.

But what if I need 4x4 and it isn't Sunday? Do I need to choose to be gay temporarily?

If I'm Muslim does that change to Friday? If I want 4x4 all weekend do I convert to Islam for Friday, go gay Saturday, and switch back to Jesus for Sunday? Will this cover me on pavement when its hot dry and sunny out?

Should this be a sticky? If you are bi or trans how does this affect your ability to use 4x4?
