Your vehicle is still new. Even the TC Shifter motor leads create havoc when they are old and submerged in water. SS-T has done a silicone gel waterproofing. The second shifter motor on my vehicle has so far been issueless.

However, will have to find out the mechanism of hub engagement of the present vehicle before one can gain confidence on it.

This is one aspect which I have never tried and would depend on your input.
Depends on the steepness and the surface, if you are talking about Sandakphu, then yes 4L is adviced, otherwise you will always be on the brakes (for the first 3 kms of downhill) on the way back.
