I have a 2007 2wd F-350. We have a Bravada for bad weather, and the Bonny does just fine in the snow. The F-350 is for hauling. 2wd provides more towing/ hauling capability than an exact model with 4wd,better gas mileage, easier to repair and less things to break- and we are not even talking about maintenance costs. A 4wd requires to additional fluid changes over a 2wd, front axle and transfer case.

Heck, I would never let me lifted Wrangler see the snow- it is a rust free mall crawler.

Nothing wrong at all with a 2wd truck, it is my preference because I already spend enough time maintening and repairing things.
