Saw your post at the end of the gear thread regarding the use of 2WD low for most of your driving off road. Makes me curious as to why you prefer 2WD. Does it help your steering? I would think that this would place a lot of strain on the rear end, where 4-Lo would spread out the torque.

Seeking enlightenment,

Brian

Hey Brian,

The reason I prefer to use 2-low is because it puts less strain through the drivetrain. I'm locked front and rear, and with big sticky Swampers aired to only 5 pounds, there's a lot of driveline windup when turning on grippy surfaces. It unnecessarily stresses components and also makes steering more difficult. Plus, if I can get through in 2wd, all the more I impress my passengers. /wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif
