In my dually I have had to use 4wd just to get across wet grass. The heavy front end and light rear end makes the rear tires spin quite easily.

Even without the manual lockout hubs you can usually defeat the front axle from locking up. Often times you just need to interrupt an electrical circuit. On most late 90 Chevy trucks pull fuse # 24. Low range is often very nice especially if it is 2 WD. Ever try to turn on dry pavement in low lock?

gee, I dont know...I pull a 357sr1 formula on an eagle galvanized tri axle trailer, total weight around 11,000 pounds with a 2wd CREW CAB GMC dually with an 8' bed and a 454 with an automatic 4L80E. Never even spun the tires at the ramp in low gear, just pull out slow and easy...

I think the difference is having the longer wheel base...what do you think?

Having four wheel drive is kind of like having a pistol. You don't really need it until you need it badly!
