titan 4x4

so i have a 2008 titan le 4x4 with the tow package and haven't had for that long. iv taking it off roading and mudding a couple times. never really needed to put it in 4 wheel drive that much but when i did it seemed to perform great. my dad had a 2008 Chevy silverado 4x4 and the titan seems to perform way better in the mud/sand then his ever did. my question was does anyone have any compliments or complaints about our trucks 4x4 capability and the whole system in general.

Complaints:
Sometimes it takes forever to shift back to 2HI from 4HI.
The front differential isn't real strong so you have to be a bit careful.

Compliments
I was pulling a 6x6x12 enclosed trailer up an icy trail/road with the OEM BFG Rugged Trail tires. I shifted to 4LO and locked the rear differential and went right up. A guy behind me in a Tundra (pre-07) made it half way and slid back down into the guy behind him.

Check out my video offroadding.

Never, ever pull someone out when you are in 4hi/low and in reverse. There are videos on the web of guys doing just that and blowing the front differential. It just isn't strong in reverse.

Older thread I know, but I found with my T if the transfer case doesn't want to shift out shifting into reverse seems to do "unlock" mine quicker. It won't shift out while the transfer case is loaded. Just my .02

Yes, but the folks behind me get real nervous when I try to shift into reverse at highway speeds.

LOL... I never need to use 4 wheel drive on road down here. Never occurred to me that's what you were talking about.

when I shift from 4HI to 2HI it flashes and wont go out of gear but if I turn the wheels all the way left, then all the way right a few times and almost every time it pops out, but if not roll forward while doing it and it will for sure go out of gear. Thats annoying a little but not bad
