Hi Brett, Frank
Many thanks for the welcome.
Thanks for the ideas and the info, I have been digging and sadly this is correct in model year 2006 onwards the neutral option in the transfer case has been removed quite literally making it an all wheel drive not a four wheel drive â€“ in my mind that is a retrograde step, but I guess itâ€™s a cost reduction move.
There is now a new idea brewing, build my own, well sort of!
I.e. get a 2005 model with good running gear if the engine is tired install the new type diesel TDV8, re-paint etc, not a new one but maybe the only way to go to get want we want that is still towable.
