    Really... whats the difference? Which one is better? My 97 has to be moved manually to 4H or 4L or 2H. Is the push button one different? I have the SR5 so it has the auto locking hubs..

    :confused:

    Well, i figured it out.. Its for push button 4 wheel drive high. You do not have to push the lever. Big deal.. Are people really that lazy? Not to mention, what happens if the solenoid goes bad? :rolleyes:

    Yeah, I just went from a 2000 with the lever, to an 03 with the button on the lever. I noticed my right knee hits it all the time.....:rolleyes:
