Tire rotation question

Short and sweet. What is the best way to rotate my tires. I have a 4WD. Single rear wheel. Do I cross the fronts to the rear and bring the rears straigt forward. Thanks fellas.

The best way to rotate tires on a 4x4 is to "x" all tires.

but really, how often do you drive in 4x4 to make that much of a difference on wear? If it was AWD all the time I could see that.

Just going from experience and what I have read in books. Sold and installed tires for 5 years. The main reason isn't because it is or isn't 4 wheel drive. The main reason is to keep the tires from chopping or becoming sawtoothed on the inside or outside edges and 4x4's do it worse than 2wd or front wheel drive vehicles.
