    just curious how often you guys actually use your 4 wheel drive...for me it's atleast once a week, between driving around the farm, pulling out bushes, driving wooded trails, etc...

    yea i hear that...we have a 21', boat and trailer weigh in around 5K...the only time our Jeep sees 4 wheel low is on the sandy ramp we use to pull the boat out at.

    Wet boat ramps (or gravel ramps), when I'm plowing, playing in the mud fields, or trying to pull my loaded dump trailer up my muddy driveway.

    I can usually get away with 2 wheel drive while plowing. But its nice to have on real slick surfaces

    Out on the beach, pulling something across a property so I don't break traction, the occassional snow, and pulling my mower out of a ditch:laugh: I probably don't use my 4WD 5-6 times a year, but when I need it, I NEED IT. It's worth the cost compared to the trouble I'd be in without it.:)
