I think it's highly subjective. Some people have had success with decent tires, chains, some weight in the back, etc. In my opinion and experience (1986 Toyota 4-speed, 2001 Dakota V6 Auto, both RWD-only), an unloaded 2WD pickup with an open diff and no chains in the snow is always on the verge of being stuck. I drove my Toyota a couple miles in almost a foot of snow, but it was a level road. I used to tie pieces of rope around the wheels of my Dakota (through the holes in the wheels and across the face of the tire) to get enough traction to get up a small hill. If you go with a 2WD vehicle, putting weight in the back and having a limited-slip rearend and chains will help, but not as much as 4WD. And if you're going up and down big hills or have worn tires, it's still dicey.

Hope this helped.
