Brake question

Why am I able to get full brake lock on all 4 wheels in 4WD but in 2wd it seems I dont even have back brakes?

You're front breaks are 80% of you're stopping power as the rear is only 20. The reason you can lock them up in 4wd is that you're front breaks are helping to stop the back as well.
