New 4wd's do not need to be engaged like the old ones to lubricate them. Older systems nothing turned but the hubs when driving. My 2011 from the factory turned the entire drive line all the time....

Every time I see a de-badged truck the first thing that I think is it has been in an accident and had an economy repair job.
