Rarely. I only got to use it twice last year.

I put mine in 4wd yesterday just to make sure it still works. Probably use it 5 times a year if that.

Quite a bit of snow here the last month or so. I've used the Auto4wd probably a dozen times or more.

I put BFG AT KO2s on it in the fall. These tires ROCK in the ice & snow!

In the past, I generally used it on a daily basis Dec through Mar. Presently though my AV tends to hibernate more in the winter time.

Yesterday (Saturday), was the first day in over a week I didn't use 4Auto. The ice and snow are my friends, I get a lot less traffic down my street when it's iced over.

I loved my BFG AT KO's too, mine still had life left in them when I took a large bolt thru the tread. I didn't have time to wait so replaced with in stock Goodyear Wranglers which are OK but no BFG.

I LIVE in northern Michigan.
My drive is a private road about 400+ yards buried back into the woods.
I need 4wd just to get out of the drive
and the county isn't the greatest for road clearing so pretty much any time I leave the house this time of the year I am in 4wd.

I use 4wd high probably once every couple of weeks. we own a farm and i constantly have to get supplies to the barn or if I am doing work on fences etc in the paddocks. As our property is quite hilly even have to use it in summer at times especially after heavy rain here in Maryland. Have owned a few 4x4's and the Avalanche definitely beats them all hands down the only thing i dot have and miss in a 4x4 is a hand twist throttle but planning to manufacture an after market part so when I need it i can have the old girl crawl as i pick up or throw stuff off the back of her :)
