    OK, so the last time I had a taco with 4WD, it had manual wheel locks-so call me out of the loop :eek:

    Just wondered if you 4WD drive guys that DON'T wheel it every weekend, actually remember to run 10 miles a month in 4WD as the manual instructs and what actually happens to the drive/mechanism if this is never done other than excessive wear and tear when it is put in 4WD after miles and miles of not getting any lubrication.

    Also was curious as to how fast is too fast to go in 4W Hi for these 2nd Gens.....if there is such a thing

    Thanks in advance

    I have no issue getting the required 4hi usage. In the rain on straighter roads probably good for urbanites.

    As for max speed in 4hi, the manual says 109 at the limit just like 2wd.

    Long remote stretch in ADK's on snow had in 80's no problem. But most times conditions where 4hi is needed will dictate slower speeds.
