So when my wife and I went in for the truck there was quite a bit of back and forth on the options.

"Do you really need 4x4?" "Um, yeah. I want clearance if & when it floods."
"Do we really need a four door?" "Michigan Trip with your folks remember?"
"The V8 costs less." "We're getting A-Plan pricing."

But here's the clincher:
"What's the Off Road Package?" "Different suspension and skid plates. It rides a little higher..."


Did I totally lie to my wife about the off road package?Can someone please explain the difference between a regular 4x4 and one with the off road package?

It came with a locking diff, but I don't know why that's good. :(

I hate being so green...

My truck has the off road package. I'm sure it also includes different front shocks!?!

I went through my truck apps and off road menu and found it. It's just a nob that I pull.


Other than boat ramps, when could I use it?

Basically any time that you are in a situation where one wheel is spinning free and the other isn't doing anything. Say for instance if you pulled off on a soft should with your passenger side wheels in sand or mud and your driver's side wheels were on a firmer surface.....

Anywhere you might need a little more traction or power.
