4X4 In Reverse?

Recommended Posts

Reversing onto driveway in the snow and ice yesterday, Red Leader wanted to know if the RAV was still in 4WD :unsure: Anyone know and, if it is, is the balance between front and rear axles the same as when moving forward?

Kev,

I suspect that at the very least it is more like Rudolphette probably with a plain gold band on one.............. er........ :!Removed!: Michael :!Removed!:

I have no idea of the technical answer to this but the practical one is did you get onto the drive, in reverse and in the snow and ice, or not? :thumbsup:

No, not Rudolph, but she is known for bringing down 'Donner & Blitzen' on those who displease her :fear:

Likewise today - only 2 or so inches of snow, but we have a very steep drive. So popped her in reverse, put AWD lock on and up she went, not a slip or stumble. Very impressed. :yes:

I don't know the set-up for reverse 4wd but I have had to back up a steepish snowy driveway in our 4.2 XT3, no slip at all, as if it was clear and dry, big :) at the time!

The 4WD is normally engaged in reverse on a 4.3.
