    Hi guys,

    I'm new here. I have a 2007 Crewmax TRD 4wd. This is actually my 3rd Toyota 4wd, my second Tundra and I love them.

    I recently heard a recommendation that you should drive in 4WD periodically to keep everything lubricated and working properly. Is this true? If so what kind of interval/distance is best?

    Thanks,

    Brian

    What the manual says. 10 miles once a month. Don't forget to run 4 low for just a minute when you can.

    I put it 4hi-4low monthly, is it true you can't turn sharp in either modes?

    On pavement yes, it binds up the driveline and can cause problems. In snow/mud loose traction situations you can turn like normal as the tires can slip as needed to relieve binding.
