In 2wd I really have watch for patches of ice, because if Im accelerating the wrong way when both back tires contact ice its an immediate spin out, 4wd isnt that bad. When theres bad spots in the road every few hundred yards and curves and hills you kinda gotta keep it in 4wd. A lot of time though Ill put it in and out of 4wd kinda of like shift on the fly! And aside from making it real hard to turn, Its really not that hard to drive with both hubs locked in.

So I know that with the twin stick tcase setup you can go front wheel hi, but has anyone done this on the road in snow? How is it?

You can only do FWD Hi if you have removed the shift rail pills or modified the shift rails. Otherwise you have every combination but Fwd Hi...

I think when I pull mine to do the 5.0 swap, I'll be modifying the rail to have that option. It needs new seals and gaskets anyway.

For a very short distance..... Until something gave (T-case, driveline U-joint, etc)

Beat it to fit, paint it to match!
