This is an interesting off-road test. They took a Rav4 TRD and followed a Jeep Wrangler mudding. They overheated the AWD system too and had to wait for it to cool. I guess slick traction surfaces and a lot of skinny pedal will overheat the electronic coupler/transfer case.

Good read... I like. So... With my lift, and even more aggressive tires, perhaps I'm close-ish to a sick jeep?

I do have to wonder though... My AWD overheat alarm came on a few minutes before it actually did it. It was more of a "don't take on anything too aggressive for the next bit" kind of alarm. Once it did switch though, it was noticeable. Very. Not going anywhere at all.
Thanks for the link!
