Raffa said:Well, I can't give much technical info but I can tell you that I took my Armada in the snow and pretty much drove it in 2 wheel drive until I got stuck and then popped it in 4 Low, got out no prob. this thing rides like a champ in the snow.
2 days ago after some heavy rain I took the Armada out in the hills where all the motorcross people and ATV'ers ride, it was still raining a little so there was no one there. 4 high the whole time and the ride was smooth as hell. Went over some of the jumps which are pretty steep on the incline and only about 4 feet high and plowed right through/over them. splashed through pools of mud.
Let's just say I had alot of fun.
Noticed some people staring at me probably wondering if I was crazy or something taking my 40K SUV doing what 4x4's are meant to do.
Cost of 4bying in a Armada LE with navi/dvd:
1. My running boards are packed with mud in the cracks (not lifted yet).
2. I am pretty sure I heard something scrape the bottom (nothing fell of though)
3. Gas mileage was the worst ever at a low 9mpg.
Fun had pushing my 4by and realizing it had could take more than I could give:
Mental note to myself: Never buy a used 4x4 from Raffa. lol
