i switch back to 4x2 at around 25-20MPH
also i recomend dumping all the weight you can, tail gate, spare tire, even the junk in the glove box and go poop before you run. it all adds up! and i know Rodslinger will agree.
most of all have fun and keep good records. a truck like ours can do well in brackets.
