BTW, don't go crazy because you have 4WD because 4WD ain't gonna help ya STOP!
Well said.
Most of the crashes I go to in the winter are 4WDs.
They are always going too fast because they can.
But being heavier, don't stop so good.

Over confidence = bad day. And the stock HP's suck which makes stopping even harder

I orignally thought that the system was running the front end all the time, but found out that there is an actuator on the right side that engages/disengages the front axle so as to not run everything all the time. Here is a link to the post on this:

I have always run mine at least once a month if I am on a gravel road or on a slick surface. Along with keeping the gears lubed, I think it helps keep the transfer case clutch exercised.

I don't think so, many cars had heat and defrost w/o AC.
