The maintenance alone can be a huge factor. It's another system to service and another thing to go wrong. If I could make do with a 2wd I would, but unfortunately I need it a few times a year, and when I need it, I NEED it.I chose 2wd for the additional towing capacity. I have rregretted not getting 4wd about 3 times for about 3 minutes. Once when i slid off of the culvert while backing my trailer up and my rear tires were off the ground. In this case my front tires were still on the road and I would have been able to pull myself out. I ended up having to get pulled out by my neighbors dodge. And twice this winter I have left for work before the plows had made it to my area and the commute (2 miles) was a little sketchy. The other 362 days of the year I have been just fine with my 2wd. Plus over the 10 years I plan on having the truck that 1mpg difference will probably add up to a bit of cost savings, along with less maintenance on the truck over time. SPPD
Hell, I know they do rock crawling and trail riding out there. Why wouldn't you want a part of that?Dont need it and dont want it!
Here in good ol west texas the only ones that need 4x4 is the people that like to drive threw the middle of the lake (yes you can drive threw the middle of most of our lakes around here)
Couldnt pay me enough to buy a used 4x4 around these parts.
If someone regrets the truck they bought ... then they bought the wrong truck in the first place. And they should trade it in and get the right truck or they'll never be happy with their truck.2wd here and absolutely no regrets. If I needed a 4wd truck I'd have gotten one. I don't gauge fun by how much mud is on my truck but by how many fish are in the cooler. My 2wd handles my boat just fine.
