    what should i use?

    allright, today we got our first snowfall (f**k) and i was just wondering what mode of 4x4 i should use when i'm driving around. (high, low, etc) i heard you arn't supposed to use it when your driving around the city but i kind of need to because we get a lot of snow. so which should i use?

    Your not actually supposed to use 4HIGH on the road cuz it will cause you to fish tail even more than if you had just 2wd on. If you have to go up a steep hill, or an icy patch, then put it in 4wd. Other wise try and leave it outta 4HIGH..and never use 4LOW cuz that's more for climbing rocks, steep mountainous terrain, mud puddles etc..it's a granny gear (so to speak).

    Have you guys got snow already?

    People who run in 2wd in snowy weather piss me off. They're slow asses are going 10MPH while their speedo reads 50MPH. They refuse to get the hell out of my way.
    By the way, 4wd fishtailing more than 2wd is stupidest thing I ever heard.

    You must not do a lot of 4x4ing on twisty roads or on the street. When you're in 4wd you fish tail a lot cuz you're being pulled. If you are in 2wd usually your frontend will slip causing you to slid sideways and off the road. But on another note, drive with 4wd in the rain is completely different. I fished tail back and forth 3 times almost going in circles in 2wd around a corner and I was only going about 20..it was rather fun.

    But also, the my dad's old 4x4 has posi front and back factory so I don't remember if that's why it was worse or better..?? There's a local highway where it snow and are hundreds of crashes a year, but we take our Jimmy up it doing 120kph in 2wd and in the snow....I don't find a point in driving really slow in the snow if you don't have too..lol
