this will be interesting. I don't like it when guys put down another mans truck. Rude and tasteless in my opinion. 2wd has a place.....has does 4wd. Either way beats the hell out of commuter cars :D

4X4 does great in snow, mud, sand, etc. Still, once you bury it up to the undercarriage, neither one will move. So EVERYTHING has it's limitation. In my opinion, though, the additional traction and balance of the drivetrain make it very valuable for living in MN. If I were in a different climate, I may have a different opinion.

For lack of better words, who cares! Sounds like greasy kids stuff to me. Most trucks are for purpose and/or environment. One of the best trucks I ever had was a '74 2wd manual. Simple, easy and could haul a good amount of stuff.

exactly! I have told everyone that unless you know how to drive a 4x4, your just gonna get stuck quicker! Where i work, we have to cross a creek and go through a muddy field to get to the animals, and while my boss has to put his f250 into 4 wheel, i zip right past him in my 2wd 1500... if you ask me, a truck is a truck and i believe that if you know how to drive right, a 2wd will do you justice

My '90 SS had an after-market locking rear. It was my daily driver, hunting truck, fishing truck, and haul rig. She did everything I ever asked of her. Her only fault was that I had to be very careful on wet roads. The back end always wanted to step out.

You know, the only reason I bought a 4wd truck this time around was so that my wife would have something more "dependable" in the snow.

Generally, when folks try to talk down to you - they're only expressing their own insecurities and shortcomings. Let it roll off like water off a duck's back.

It all depends on what you need a truck to do. Some need their rig for work, some for play, and some for mall crawlin....

I can't get away with 2wd anymore for what I do. No way in hell your truck would go half the places mine does. But that's why I have the truck I do. Even Oklahoma winters would keep you in the driveway with a 2wd. And those that didn't were happy to see me pullin up :)

Needs change and you have to have the right tools for the job. Sometimes 2wd can get it done, but when it can't I feel a lot better about payin the extra cash for 4wd.

I honestly wish my dually was 2wd, Ive only put my truck in 4wd about a handfull of times. The duals in the rear seem to hold their own whenever I was off-roading. I have been stuck in mud before, but that was completely stuck, even in 4wd. I guess it's a nice thing to have, like a "just in case" type thing, when the truth is you are never in that situation.

If anything you can always turn that 2wd that you take so much **** for into probably the one of fastest street trucks in your area. That's what I would do, then it wouldn't matter if you face a 4wd jeep, your 2wd will pull him outta the parking lot
