Damn Joe, I was wondering where you went.

But yea, don't let Morgan or the Cali boys in here, they'll dispute Pat's claim to the death.

Let's take the 2wd trucks and mine and see who gets further. Yes a properly set up 2wd can drive offroad but its still 2wd.

Every vehicle has it's limit. Even a 460 powered F250 sitting 40" off the ground with Rockwells and tractor tires will have it's limit. It's just a matter of where that limit falls, and for 4x2's, that limit falls a little short of a 4x4. However, off-roading can be viewed as 3/4 driver, 1/4 equipment. Off-roading is easily an intellectual hobby, and if you go in like a dip-shit, you won't come out. If you plan it out and know what you're doing, then you won't have much of a problem. I've run my truck through 2-3 feet of sticky and slippery clay mud and 3 foot water/mud puddles without getting stuck. I've also run my truck up lime rock roads that are barely wide enough for my tires, and it's made it just fine. I even have an open rear axle and have yet to have a problem. I feel safe to say that 3/4 of the time, it's not the vehicle that gets you stuck, it's stupidity.
