    I've always been curious.

    Any issues pulling it out of the water?

    OMG!

    It is terrible pulling it out of the water, especially if there is a steep boat ramp.

    One time I had to 6 large guys to sit in the bed and I was still spinning with the rear diff locked. Only time I wish I had 4WD.

    But regular highway towing was fine.

    some people need it others dont, its just preference and practicality.... :)

    people in the city 24/7 dont really need a 4x4 with a locker, people that go off road or have a ranch/farm etc do.

    My first 2 trucks were 2wd and I got along just fine. Some people don't need it, some don't want the added maintenance, some don't want the extra initial cost, lots of reasons. 4wd doesn't make the truck.

    Yeah, I dont know why anybody would put camoflouge bug deflector and vent shades on a truck. Or buy the cheapest model with the bootleg steel wheels...:confused:

    I dont have 4-wheel drive because I dont need it and dont want the extra maintenance. My truck has 60K and looks like it came off the showroom floor, inside and out. It DOES NOT touch anything other than concrete.
