Default 4wd system

Hi. I am looking for get a 91+ samurai for an everyday truck. I try searching 4wd and mph under samurai section but yield no result.

Can these truck go 60mph on 4wd? I live in milwaukee and thinking of a winter vehicle between this and a rav4 2 door 4wd. I would prefer a suzuki due to aftermarket support. I was wondering because I had a 83 toyota 4wd truck and it is recommended to not go 45mph in 4wd. Thank you.

There is no speed restriction for 4H in a stock Samurai, assuming evertying is in good repair and properly maintained. Top speed of a stock Samurai in good tune is around 80. I find 65 to be a good cruising speed.

For a modified Samurai, it really depends.

Please be aware that the 4WD system on a Samurai is a part time system and not meant to be used on a hard, dry surface - now - do you want to be travelling at 60 mph in 4WD on a loose, slick or slippery surface?

Personally I wouldn't.

Good point.

I was thinking of it from the aspect of, hubs locked, ready to go in and out of 4WD as needed, like when I'm in a area with patchy snow.
