XREAS is fine for how most drive but it is expensive to fix. However replacing with normal shocks is very easy when the time comes.

Personally I would only by a Limited but as always do whatever works best for you.

My wife has the SR5 and knows how and when to use 4wd. She also shops for jeans at Bass Pro Shops as opposed to Nordstroms.

Oh, I forgot this. I don't really want to give up my smart key.

Man, you guys really have no faith in your wives do you? Take them out and show them how to drive a 4x4. When my wife got her first Range Rover classic, my buddy jumped in with her, I jumped in his Disco with his wife, sometimes better, in my case anyway, they don't learn from you, and we taught them all about off-roading. On my wife's first trip, she came through an off camber section a bit too low and clipped her rear quarter panel on a tree. I showed her the damage when we got off the trail. She smiled and said, "my first war wound" and wore it like a badge of honour. Later she had a Ford F250 and had no problem switching into 4 wheel drive when necessary. It's ok, empower them.

Currently in a 2012 Limited and just hit 93k miles. Dealership told me on last oil change XREAS was starting to seep, cost, $3800. Ill probably go with the Eibach Pro kit this summer. Less than $750, and Ill install myself. The XREAS appears to be fairly simple to remove intact or just cut out. Weve had a few snowstorms and its been fantastic. Easily made it up a giant snowy hill that was like a car warzone. Easy to tow the boat on a slick boat ramp. I replaced my 20s with TRD Pro wheels for not a ton of money.

hahahaha! No. No I don't. Some people just aren't good "operators." When my wife drives, her foot is either hard on the gas or hard on the brake. No smoothness, no looking ahead. She will accelerate right up to a red light then slam on the brakes. I try to politely point out what she could do better. In one ear and out the other. It is what it is.

Glad to hear everyone was alright! Do you think the wreck would have been avoided if you had full-time 4wd?

Do non-Limited versions allow you to go into 4WD without locking the center diff?

I, too, was thinking about trading in my SR5 for a Limited because my wife asked (still asks) the same question regarding the 4WD mode. I didn't do it because of the cost. My wife preferred using that money for trips and vacations. If I had to do it over it again, I would buy a Limited model and be done.

No.

There are 3 options
1) 2WD (rear wheels)
2) 4HI (4wd center diff locked)
3) 4LO (4wd center diff locked, low range)

Thanks. I knew that was the case with the earlier models but wasn't sure if they changed it. Anyways, that is a very MAJOR difference.

To be fair we probably shouldve been in 4wd as there was a blizzard the day before and the highway still has some residual.

Traded in my SR5P for a limited yesterday. Just seemed crazy to have to shift in/out of 4wd all the time. Where I plan on driving I could have snow/bare concrete/ice, perhaps all in the same sharp intersection. What good is 4wd if you the risk of wrecking it hitting dry concrete. I got a good enough deal on trading up. Wish I would have just gone Limited in the first place.
