    No offense but you bought a 4x2 and you live in the northeast :confused:

    I'm in Pittsburgh and I use my 4wd all winter long. A front-wheel drive Nissan Altima gets better traction than my rear tires on snow.

    Do you put weight in your bed?

    I don't mean to kick you in the nuts again but you also get raped on the resale value for a 2wd truck in the north.

    ^Seems like...
    I'll go with my usual comparison: I have a Glock but maybe I should buy an AR15 or maybe a Stinger missile because, hey, "it's better to have it and not need it than it is to need it and not have it!".

    You either need it or you don't. If I were still living in NJ (I lived there 29 years), I'd have a 4X4. However, I made it through plenty of winters with a lowered S10 and sand bags so I think there's a driving ability issue here.

    Just out of curiosity, how many times other than the next couple days have you NEEDED 4X4?

    How old are you? We got 34 inches in south Jersey in 1996 and had a state of emergency for 3 days. In Philly, they were dumping snow off the piers into the river because they had nowhere else to put it. I got stuck in freaking Bellmawr at my girlfriends (now my wife) apartment.

    Best thing to do is, if it's that bad, don't go anywhere. It's not worth destroying your truck. I went out in a snowstorm once in my 1982 Honda Accord just because I HAD to go get a piece of ass. TOTALLY not worth it.

    You're far better off having a front wheel drive car than a 2WD truck.

    Front wheel drive can kick ass in the snow. I had a little 4 cylinder Mazda Protege front wheel drive and that thing went everywhere - including 25 mile trips to work in snow emergencies.

    I'm running in northern Wisconsin right now with a Pre Runner. I bought it in Florida and now moved back up here. Just got it a year ago so I can't afford to trade yet, but I'm used to driving up here (lived here my whole life except for 2 years in Florida) so I have not been having any trouble yet. I put 4 sand bags in the back(total of 240 lbs).
