Lifted trucks

Not sure if this question has been ask before. For lifted trucks, is it better off leaving it in regular 2wd mode or switch to 4HI mode?

Better for what? If you're doing normal driving, then it should always be in 2wd. Where did you come up with that idea to put it in 4hi?

Lifting gives you more clearance but shouldn't change when you put it in 4hi, drive normal daily and light offroad in 2hi and moderate offroad in 4hi and extreme offroad in 4low, or use 4lo to get out of a stuck spot.

Just asking, didn't know if I was suppose to keep it still in 2wd mode or 4HI when lifted. Beside daily driving in 4HI don't hurt a bit does it?

You should'nt drive on dry pavement in 4 wheel drive. The tires need to slip so the drive train does'nt bind. That could cause serious probs later on. Plus your mileage will suffer in 4x4.
