With winter coming I'm looking for some clarification. This is the first true 4x4 that I've owned. Everything else has either been FWD or AWD. The manual says no dry road usage, I get that. The Frontier isn't in any danger of being confused as a 911 or an Audi so why would you ever need it anyway on a dry road anyway? If we have open diffs at the front and the rear (I have a CC SV) and the traction control is used to engage the second wheel on either axle then why would it matter if I used 4X4 Hi as long as I kept it under the max speed? Wouldn't just a single tire on each axle be engaged outside of a slipping situation anyway? Are the active and engaged wheels on opposite sides of the truck? Maybe that's a wheel speed difference issue. I ask because snow removal can be spotty up here so it would be nice to have in in 4 Hi when the roads are partially covered in snow but do not want to break anything. The Search function revealed a few threads but nothing definitive.
