    So I've searched through the forums real quick, and understand and agree about the break in period. My '10 OR 4x4 is sittin at around 300 miles right now. Is there a certain amount of time I should refrain from going offroad, and/or engaging 4x4? I only ask because i'm a newb to the 4x4/truck world! thanks gents.

    Engaging 4WD and cruising some 2 track for at least 10 miles a month is part of the regular maintenance. I'm serious. Keeps the 4WD components from sitting and binding up.

    Yeah, make sure your 4x4 and locker are nice and broken in. Only takes a few times to do it, but it makes a world of difference!
