Default Re: 4x4 vs 2wd

I've been driving 2WD pickups since my 1971 F-100, and have been in Wisconsin for the last 20 years. Last winter I had 6 sandbags in the back of my Dakota and did my best to just point it down the road and hope for the best. Last November I got a 2010 4WD Ranger Sport. This winter it's been great on roads that are icy, snow packed and hazardous. My 30 mi one way commute is rural on county roads. Taking it slow in 4WD with the 5 speed transmission I just feel safer when it's really sloppy out. If you have to get to work and back on bad winter roads, you can do it with 2WD, but 4WD is well worth it IMHO.
