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:

dunno man, mine is by far the best 4x4 system I've ever had or driven and thats a lot. Did you have your vsc or whatever they call the traction control on or off? On could cause some stupid things to happen.

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?
locker light shouldn't flash... unless you're going over 8mph I think.... As far as engauging and disengauging the 4x4, mine goes right in, but for it to come out you have to let all presure off of the internals (t-case), for example give it some gas and then let off and let it coast.

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
yeah man you're right. Most people will never even know how to engage it. I've been asking TRD owners for years now if they've ever used it. Most of the time the answer is "what? oh that button to the left of the steering wheel... no I've never used it". I've used mine already a few times, but we get snow here and have had a lot of ice and we're in the mountains AND I'm stupid and tend to get into odd situations. I can tell you one thing, when visiting my parents house this year after 3" of clear ice I was the only person who could get to their house, and that's out of Ford Exploder, Chevy 2500, Subaru, and a Ford f150. All 4x4.
