Can't make u-turn in 4HI

Is it normal that I can't make a u-turn in 4HI? the front wheels just go stiff as a board and won't turn very easily. My 4Runner never did this.

It's normal. Unless you're on ice

Weird, my 4Runner in 4HI can, must be using a totally different 4x4 system as the Tundra.

Public Service Announcement (this is actually a repeat of a repeat of a repeat of a repeat PSA): do NOT try and flip U'ees (U turns for those in Rio Linda) on dry pavement (this includes: asphalt, concrete, dirt, stiff gravel) in your Tundra IN four wheel drive (often referred to as: 4WD).

Oh my.

I'm not completely useless. I can always be used as a bad example.

Man, I should have bought a 4Runner. Anyone want to buy a 2018 Tundra CM SR5 4x4 with 480 miles for 39,000? That's exactly what I paid for it (got a SMOKING deal on it).

Not to crush you, but $39k isn’t a smoking deal for that.

Dude, the Tundra is just fine for most anyone. You just have to adapt to what she needs to run right. If you can't do that. Or are unwilling to learn that. Then..................uh.........um...........un.. .........Subaru Outback???

Be glad you were born when you were cuz you would have no chance with a 4WD truck from the 1980's (having to get OUT OF THE CAB and physically turn and lock in the front hubs to run 4WD ).

That was 39k out the door, as in with all taxes and stealership fees -- and actually, it was exactly 38,625 and exactly 3,000 in taxes and fees, so the truck was exactly 35,625.
Window sticker says 44,000
Is that a good enough deal for you?

A 4Runner can be set in (and left in) 4Hi 24/7/365.
I was born in 67, so...
1980 Toyota Land Cruiser 4x4
1986 Chevy Silverado 4x4
1990 Ford F150 4x4
1993 Ford F150 4x4
2000 Toyota 4Runner 4x4
2006 Toyota 4Runner 4x4
Both 4Runners can stay in 4Hi year 'round.

lol, now you include all that other info? So....you got almost $9k off the sticker? Something doesn't seem right about that, but you says you did, so it must be true. Cheers to your deal.

Also, if you owned all those other full size trucks, it should be VERY common knowledge that you cannot drive in 4HI "24/7/365" on dry pavement and doing a U turn in 4HI is absurd.

I was surprised to find that I can't considering my last two vehicles were 4x4 Toyota's that could. I am comparing Tundra to 4Runner, not to the other trucks, that comparison was made by you.
Anyway, I have already contacted the dealer to see what I can trade it in on for a 4Runner.
