2wd will ride way better, also ways less than a 4x4.

Dj, I look at you as a wise individual, but i would think in stock form, a 2wd would ride better than a 4wd.

I'll agree. They can keep their heated seats and power windows too, soon you'll have to wear a dress to own a truck.

My wife has an 84 2wd ranger, before I had my 90 4wd ranger we used the 84 in the winter, about 600 pounds in the bed and tire chains would let that truck go anywhere.
