    I ran mine last night up to 65mph in 4x4high. I was getting a little impatient with the slow drivers that were forcing me to slow down. Salt trucks spoil all the fun too.:mad:

    Just got home from making Sales calls, many accidents. I got about 14" in my driveway. Was doing 65-70 in 4x4. This thing is great in the snow! The nrealized 2WD is fine with the traction that the 09 has.

    I got to play a little bit in my 09 too but i'm from TN. When it snows an inch here everyone flips out on the road. They'll all start driving about 5mph causing more trouble than the weather. I love the LSD in these trucks though becasue i was able to pass wihtout problem and get away from all the dummies

    Yeah, I had fun in the snow today, too. ;)

    I lived in Marlton for a few years in HS; Kings Grant. Used to fish after school at Tomlinson Mill lake all the time.

    I've rarely ever used 4x4 at sustained speeds over 40 mph or so. I figure if the conditions actually require 4x4, I shouldn't be doing much more than that anyway. Good to hear that it's smooth at those speeds though.

    OTOH, I have passed lots of trucks in the ditch who were doing posted highway speeds (55-65) with 4x4 engaged :D:D:D
