Ours is 4x2 also but she does great - we have the 6sp Auto trans which so far has been doing fine as well too. going to hit the mountain this weekend and see how well she really does lol.
There were a few threads about lifts here on the forums - debating doing a 1in lift maybe on ours later - not sure yet.
