How am I supposed to do donuts with the kids if I can't have just 2wd?
if the AWD bothers you....why did you buy an AWD model? They are offered without it you know

I agree tho' I don't like the AWD mode. Its okay on my Suburban(autotrac) and Grand(select trac) becuase that is just a setting on the transfer case....both still have 2wd mode. I had an explorer that was AWD didn't like it. It was slow to engage and clunk loudly everytime it did. Plus like you said it was hard to donuts with it:tonka:
