ok im freaking pissed this truck is about to go to hell.

does anyone have issues with their 4wd, cuz mine feels more like its in 2wd!! its the worst 4wd ive ever seen, and thanks to the pos i put my BRAND NEW TRUCK INTO A TREE!!!!! please please please tell me there is something wrong with my 4wd or its just the crappy stock tires. the 2000 kicked more *** in 2wd than this truck does in 4..... very very mad!!!

and also the 4wd wouldnt kick out.....

i stopped, put it in 2 and hit drive and drove it wouldnt go out, so i stopped and tryed the reverse trick, still wouldnt go out. i shut the truck off and turned it back on, still wouldnt go out!!! finally i turned the truck off, shifted into 4 then back to 2, turned the truck back on and it went out.... WTF! im really hoping my 4wd is just a pos, because when my back tires were spinning in the mud my front wasnt doing a damn thing.

and like i said, now i got a nice dent in my brand new truck thanks to this crappy *** 4wd system.... :evil:

i tried taking it out of 4 while i was moving several times at different speed between 10-40 mph. and then of course stopped and all the stuff i said before.

and like i said i was trying to climb a hill and my friends out side said my back tires were spinning but my front wernt doing a damn thing. this thing really makes me sick to my stumach, i guess ill take it to the dealership tomorrow and see what they say.

and it didnt get that muddy, and i washed it asap because of that damn dent.

i think i can bang the dent out my self. the scratchs SHOULD buffout, they really dont look that bad, they pretty much go away rubbing them with my thumb. only problem is i have one spot where the paint chipped off...

Just out of curiosity, if you dented your hood, then that sounds like you couldn't stop short enough to avoid hitting that tree. So how is that related to, or the fault of, the 4wd?

Anyhow, if your rears are spinning and the fronts aren't, then it sounds like you have a problem. Let us know what the dealer says.

uhhh who said i dented my hood? i dented the side of my bed... i was going down a trail and its like its in 2wd, the rear tires spin, and the back end slids sideways, right into a tree. my old frontier never did that, i pass that tree every time i go in/out of our mud hole and me nor any of my friends have ever hit that tree.
i just thought of something.....

there is the little display of the 4tires on the guage cluster... now the back tires are lit up the front are not.. untill u put it in 4wd... now is that the only light that comes on when you put it in 4wd? cuz i had a yellow idiot light come on saying 4wd in the gauge cluster as well.... and a few hours ago when i was messing with the 4wd that light didnt come on but the 4 tires did light up..... is maybe that yellow 4wd light like a warning light saying something is wrong with the 4wd? also when u lock the rear end, is the yellow light suppose to flash that says its locked? cuz mine flashes......
ha!! so see i knew i was in 2wd!!!! which explains why my front tires wernt spinning, and the 4wd sucks so bad that the 2wd 2000 frontier would own this one... because my damn 4wd wasnt working. this makes me happier anyway. still doesnt fix my dent which by the way is going to cost me 1400$ to repair!!!! lol so i guess i need to figure out why the 4wd wasnt working, any ideas? it appears to be working now...

and the rear locker light still flashes.... is that normal?
oh man i totally take back my previous statments. i had to haul 2 ton of hay today up and down a muddy hill side, 4 high didnt even spin a tire, just trucked right up it!! thats what im talking about, now im driving a nissan again. i played with the locker, when it engauges it stays on solid, doesnt blink. and boy does it kick *** lol. i FREAKING LOVE MY NEW TRUCK! all except that damn 1400$ dent lol.
you really dont need a locker, most people dont ever do the right type of wheelin to need it. only time ill ever use my locker is when i get stuck with a wheel off the ground
glad i can enlighten someone :D lol, i like to pave the trails for people. haha
