    I'm from the United States and I've never seen a hub controlled 4×4. We might have them but I've only seen push button 4×4, or lever 4×4 and usually when I hear 4×4 I think of a Chevy, Ford, dodge, jeep but I guess that's just what's popular here

    wish me luck, working to make sure I keep my baby safe when taking this bet for $40 to do a little off-road.

    Geez! I wish I had of known bout locking the front hubs in back in 2013. I got my first 4×4 (a 89 Nissan Pathfinder) and took it straight off into the bush not to far from home. Not long before I came across sand and quickly got bogged down. TOTALLY forgot about the front locks and figured the 4×4 wasn't going in so walked 8.5km to farmhouse in 38 degree Aussie heat in wheatbelt. After nearly burning to a crisp and got back there with neighbours only for them to tell me I forgot to lock in front hubs!!!!

    Thanks mate. Got myself a used Hummer H3 and taking it back country on the Rocky Mts of Colorado. I have learnt so much from your simple explanations on various points. Trust the Aussies to keep it simple !
