We just purchased a new Sequoia Platinum, love it!
We traded in our 2007 Lexus GX470, which was a great car as well but did not have the towing capacity we need.
I should have done some additional research on the Sequoia drive set-up, but I didn't. Our GX had either the all wheel drive option or manually pull it into 4 wd lo or hi. The Sequoia is in either 2x4 with traction control or 4x4 (no driving on dry pavement). So when it's in 4x4 mode this is the same as a F350 I had when I got out and locked up the hubs? The only difference is, I do it from inside the truck? The manual tells you to drive in 4X4 mode once in a while to keep everything upfront lubricated. I don't believe it states that you must not do this on dry roads. The road to our house is not paved, gravel, so I put it in 4x4 mode and everything was good until I started up our paved driveway, immediatly I felt it grabbing and stopped driving right away and switched back to 2x4.
If someone could give me some direction how to best use this set-up, it would be appreciated.
