I see pictures of the rebel day it was unveiled with 4wd Auto.

Anyone has that? I certainly don't
Which model comes with it?

It was my understanding the auto 4 wheel drive came with a different transfer case. That one is not as strong as the one they put in the rebel

Well that's a bummer. Anyone know if the powerwagon has it? Would think the rebel would be fairly close since they tried to bring its toughness to a 1/2 ton

Just spent (3) days in the back woods on wet nasty ripped up muddy fire roads in PA. Had 4-wheel lock in all weekend hunting and was impressed with the Rebel. It handled like my Jeep Rubicon and I had total confidence in it. No issues whatsoever. No big issue hitting the 4wd button.

I had a 2010 Chevy Silverado prior to the Rebel and would not have attempted some of the trails I did in the Rebel. I'm very happy! Honestly felt like I was driving my Jeep

It would be nice but doesn't take much effort to push the button. Considering growing up and having a big bronco that we had to get out and lock/unlock the hubs when we wanted 4WD. Then to disengage drive backwards a bit...so yea, hitting a button is no big deal for me.

I second the locking hubs notion. I remember being submerged in mud and having to lock the hubs...that sucked...pushing a button is easy enough. Besides, who does the truck think it is telling us when it needs to be in 4WD anyway?

Yep... When I was a kid I used to have the Job of turning the Hubs on my Dad's 75 K5 Blazer... Olde School Style! Coming from the Jeep world... I'm used to having the job of selecting 4wd when I felt it was necessary!
