I have several times.

It is particularly useful when you wish to slide around something rather than go over. I came to a rock that I had to either go over, or go around, and going over was going to get me stuck, but the rear wouldn't "slide" as, with it locked, it wanted to just climb. So, I unlocked the rear, and kept the front locked, and was able to pull around the rock.

Its not common, but it is a nice feature.

Awesome. My "dream use" is when I follow someone down a shelf road in the snow, then for whatever reason we have to back up. When your back is locked, it tends to just slide off the road, but when you're open everywhere it's not enough to get going, and it's worse trying to back up around a corner. Would be sweet to be locked in front only in that situation.

Hey, that's great!

Didn't you have that sweet 100 series a few years back with all the LCD screens in the headrests? That one was very tempting when you were selling it.

That's right. If a bridge rated for 20,000 lbs collapses when a 30,000 lb. rig crosses it, it is the bridge's fault.

No not really....but the silly engineer who decided to build a light duty bridge that might be called into the duty of a severe duty bridge should be publicly flogged! Put a kids go-cart parts on dads golf cart and you just might not be able to get all 18 holes in in one day!

I have run locked in the front open in the rear due to the fact that the front engages almost immedialty and I often get to the top of an obstical to realize the rear locker is still flashing and not yet engaged. Or I don't want to wait so I just drive straight up with front locked only. I have not had to pull the tight turn drag the rear move yet, or back up, but when I have to I'll be able to.
If something looks gnarly, I'm not of the try it open, then try 1 locker then try 2. It there is not a lot of turning involved and chances of low traction. I'll run both lockers. If I have to turn it's rear. If it's looks easy, nada.

Yeah we try to forget that one again, trying to save a few bucks on the now, doesn't always go in your favor. I have this odd aversion to debt/car payments that sometimes doesn't pan out....like that cruiser. Should have kept it. Didn't lose or gain money, but chalked it up as a learning experience
