Rav4 is an off-road vehicle like the 4runner. Is the 4wd a true 4wd. Can I lock

reasonable request.....sorry about that......would like to know more about the beach being used. Trying to decide if the Rav4 will be suitable on Fire Island NY seems that I more info regarding the traction control on the 09-10 Ravs. Do you engage the 4wheel lock and then turn off the traction to simulate a true 4WD like the jeeps?

Is there anything additional you need to do when going on the beach ?
How much do you take the tire pressure to ?
How do you reset the tire pressure light ? Do you need to overfill the tires ?
Do you need to disengage the traction control
Thanks for the help

typically the tire pressure runs between 12-15 lbs before entering the beach.
traction control should be disengaged.
speed limit is 10 mph
in order to reset the tire pressure light you need to overinflate the tires by 4 lbs

Thanks for the information .
Can you tell me how the 4 WD drive lock worked for you . This was a big selling point to me since most if not all SUVS in this range do not have the lock
