i disagree to a point in 4 lock i find the control it offers not complicated at all and i really like it ive avoided accidents a few times because i had the control. But with the auto feature thats where it gets complicated cuz u never know when it gonna kick in. when its slippery im allways in 4 lock

...and being in 4WD WILL help to keep you from getting into the skid in the first place. I would much rather have 4 points of contact powering me out of a skid than just the rear two.

Yeah, I also say that 4wd is better (or at least safer) at limits of adhesion for street driving.
