In the past I have always owned four wheel drives with full time four wheel drive. I have just purchase a new nissan patrol and would like some advise on correct use. Can i use 4H for driving on the black top or does this create axle wind up. What about snow and icy roads is it ok then. Your combined expertise appreciated

Scott any use of 4H on the black top( dry one) in part time 4x4 will damage your gearbox and transfer case. If the conditions are slipery and you require more traction simply put your hubs in and engage 4H as you need.You can drive part timer with free wheeling hubs in for ages without any dramas. In short, any driving in 4HI or low on good tractable surface is a no,no. Reson is the lack of centre diff which eliminates front and rear axle speed differences.
Hope this helps.

Be sure to engage 4WD from time to time (off road) just for the purpose of lubrication of crown wheel if nothing else

All you need is to lock the hubs and drive for a while. This causes all the front transmission parts to move. No need for 4WD.

No need to engage the hubs just engage 4h and this will spin all the diff gears etc ( no need to get out of the car )
