I have read your comments and the other comments you linked to, and all I can say is that in my own experience with my own truck, 4 Hi, is definitely engaged 100% of the time. There is no slip or disengagement whatsoever.

Even in 4 Auto, I have not encountered what you are describing, and god knows we have had our fill of ice and snow this winter.

What I could see happening with this type of wet clutch arrangement, is that you could potentially burn the clutch pack with allot of abuse.
