well today at college in my normal quest for cool parking spots no one can have except me and my xj, well some other guy in a Wrangler took the one next to the mud hole I always get, so I needed something,, so ok here is the deal, im going to describe this as I see it, there is straight ahead the mud hole and to my right there is an elevating grass, starts low and ends up about 15ft tall at a 80 degree slope,, with the top completely flat, so well I was a lil afraid of it at first so I decided not to go to the highest part so I took the part that is about 10 ft tall with a 75 degree slope,, so I put the xj in 4lo and approach slowly when my front tires are about to hit the start of the slope I accelerate no more than 2k I believe and it went up like nothing,, my tires did not slip and it did not hesitate AT ALL ( my front tires are mini van tires, no so good grip, and my rear are some T/A I believe ) so now Im really exited for the next day to try to go up a lil higher and a lil steeper


well thats my story whats yours..:cheers:

well my uncle always told me if you have a 4x4 vehicle then you should run it for at leas 10 meters for the 4wd to work a lil, like an exercise, bc then it can get real hard to lock in after many time with out use, and suddenly you need it and it wont engage or something..

What he is talking about.... most manufacturers recommend engaging the front axle for at least 5 miles every so many miles, to keep axle joints and everything "limbered" up. It really only applies to 4x4s with lock in/lock out hubs b/c nothing turns on them with the hubs disengaged.

As far as tires are concerned, as long as he is running the same size front to rear, he is fine. Running A/Ts against M/Ts, or A/Ws against A/Ts will not affect the four wheel drive system. As far as running on the blacktop, you shouldn't run any part time transfer case for extended periods of time on the blacktop.
