It is true 4x4. You say improper locking rear diff that’s your opinion. The fact is they use a different method to lock the rear diff not an improper one. The trailhawk is heavier and requires more power and low range. Ford is more reliable than Jeep.It has a proper locking rear diff and a dual transfer case. The Badlands doesn't have a low range and the dual clutch isn't as reliable as a locking rear diff. You can lock the Trailhawk into low and and true 4x4 all day.
