    Welp, took the new taco out for its maiden voyage into the world of off roading yesterday?? Dropped the wife off at work and called my buddy ( who is a die hard CJ fan ) and we went to try the 4wd out.. WOW!!! Took a couple times to figure the rr diff lock out and to get that stupid 4lo buzzer to stop goin off, but we did it in great fashion. 3/4 way thru trip I could not believe I forgot the camera?? DUHHH!!! Needless to say with a total of 492.8 miles on it she has her first scratches and I probaly should get the chrome skid plate now since my buddy took me to a place I have not been in years and the drop into the pit was deeper than expected.. Guy's that is one AWESOME truck. Anyone ever in CT and want some fun ass 4wheelin to do let me know..

    Funny you ask... I posted a reply on a thread where someone was trying their vsc and downhill assist and it sounded like they where a little confused by it, must have an auto tranny?? I wanted to try the locker and wound up getting carried away I guess because I spent the next day with my pressure washer, on my back washing and waxing it for hours!!! Plus had to do the interior.. HAHAHA!!! What a pain... Now for the 4+4 report, the locker was great ( once I figured it out?? ) it took a few tries to get 4lo to stop buzzin and hissin but once that was figure out the locker finally engaged, good thing because by that time I was in some pretty deep soup and that taco pulled out of it without a problem man.. Very impressed!!! My buddy loved it, but when I finally got home I was like BALLS now I've done it and it was 3 days old.... AHHHH, didn't do much, some fin scratches in the clear which I scrubbed out and dinged the skid plate up but it was a blast.. I think I'll start putting some mods on it and try again when the snow falls, atleast it will be broke in and I won't care anymore.. Thanks for asking though

    I got tired of the "buzzing" and "hissing" too.:D Here was my solution, never thought about reading the manual.:D:D I do have a 230:1 crawl ratio now though-
