    Im simply impressed with the 4x4 systems in these trucks, Hell im even overly happy about how great it does in 2WD. I took my truck out to a local spot and it did things my land rover had trouble with in 4x4! GREAT TRUCK! seriously im doing a little bragging, Showing off and ranting. But its okay, Cause i gotta 2nd gen and this is the 2nd gen thread! :) LOVE MY TRUCK!

    I think "User error" was meant to mean, People who dont check clearances, Overshoot it, Under estimate something and not use there brains because they have 4x4. I checked all my corners, Went slow and walked around every so often checking for problems.

    Foglights are for fog, not oncoming traffic!
    I hear you.
    4wh-lo is a moody bitch...sometimes it's in the mood, sometimes not.
    I would love to have a Jeep system on these trucks, far superior.

    Yeah, I gots boost
    My biggest complaint by far... The engaging system for 4x4 is an adventure every time. You never really know if it's gonna lock in or not. And if mine messes up and times out, it quits trying and won't let me try again. I have to kill then engine and start all over. Stupid. That is one thing I definitely liked better on my first gen.
