I've spent the day learning on the fly! 4wheel drive is truly amazing, and I can't believe I hadn't tried it sooner. The drive no longer feels like I'm surfing to my destination. Snow is no longer an issue for me.
yeah have you tried offroading yet youll have a blast just make sure you bring an experienced frend with you cuz its in evitable that youll get stuck your first time and need someone to pull you out
also go mudding its a blast but can be a very expensive hobby and things are bound to break
Hey! I like you just recently got a 4 wheel drive ('09 Chevy) and I use it in the bush a lot! One thing your manual will say is not to engage the 4 wheel drive on dry pavement as it will damage your drive train - listen to this! (read your manual) It will make a hell of a noise if you engage the four wheel on dry pavement and try and turn - Use your Four wheel drive on Snow and loose soils in the bush or back country and on pavement during inclement weather - it will take a bit of time to get use to and you will have to change your driving habits but it will make the difference and you will wonder how you lived without it! Good luck!
I use my 07.5 LMM 4x4 for lots of different reasons.
I use my 4H mostly for wet or snowy green light intersection launches. I would never do it on dry asphalt, cause I still haven't got the tie rod end link mods yet.

i use my 4wd also for alot of different reasons
like if im working in a farm pasture thats muddy or had just rained
pulling my brothers dumba** friends out of ditches
pullingstumps or small grain silos down
yes i no i put alot of strain on my truck by doing so but that was with my old truck and it was very good at it as it had a shift kit and abunch of other options done to it
i also do like to go do a little off roadin but the darn dnr shut down one good spot and teh city took a dozer to the other spot by our level be road so i cant do much of that anymore
the 94 i just baught is gonna be a work truck also so it will be doin most of what the older one did mimus pulling down small grain silos as its a very high milage truck
4wd i will never use on dry pavement only in the proper conditions
