Bought my 4x4 for personal use. Never really brought it out for serious 4-wheeling except on a sandy beach where some vehicles get a bit bogged down. It does perform a bit different and you can feel its "sure-footedness" as each wheel provides the optimum traction to get you over soft sand. I changed the turbine intake hose to a new one (that was posted by Merlin). My dealer was bit surprised that I have the newer version to replace mine with and that the part number that it was cataloged on was valid. They told me that they would be using that part number from here on. Interesting!
