    First truck I owned was a 2WD. Took it to the beach and got stuck soon as I hit the sand. Get the 4x4 and you never have to second guess beach trips, snow, mud, etc.

    This thread needs a poll just to tell you how much you need the 4x4

    Honestly if you even have to ask. Buy the 4wd. I made the mistake of buying a 2wd after 3 straight 4wd trucks. A terrible decision and ive spent the a decade yelling at myself for it. Buy once, cry once.

    its a very small increase in price. Would you try and save 7% on a pair of nice shoes that you like almost as much as yo favorites? No

    If you have the 4x4, and don't even use it that often, it is still cool to have. If you have a 2x4, and get in a couple situations where you needed 4x4, it kind of makes you think; "I will go for it next time I buy a truck." Go for it now, and have what you want.

    We go to the Sierra's a few times a year and up to Pismo and having 4x4 is very nice/fun.

    True Dat!!!

    Just make sure IF you get 4WD, you SHOULD drive it in 4WD for a couple miles once a month to keep the 4WD working properly. But not on dry pavement.

    My 2002 is 4WD, and since I don't use it often I added an LSD to the rear. My 2007 is 2WD, and I am adding a mechanical LSD because the electronic LSD interferes with 5.7L RWD driving fun.

    Depends on your use. If you're keeping it long term, imo definitely 4WD. Your situation, commute, location, or even hobbies may change and its better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Plus as others stated, resale. Though if you're using it strictly for hauling/towing on road then you wont be missing out on much in 2WD.

    I once got a great deal on a 2004 Cummins Dodge. It was a 2x4. I would have preferred a 4x4, but I said I don’t need it and the price rocked. I got stuck on a gravel lot once w/a trailer, I had to fry my clutch w/a huge trailer up a long, steep, weird hill (needed low range) and in the winter, hitting a snowy vacation was very annoying, used another vehicle. After not that long I started thinking about having a 4x4 in my future.

    20 years ago the first truck I ever bought new was a 2wd GMC Sierra. It had those horrible uniroyal tiger paw tires that SUCKED.

    First weekend I owned it I went to a college football game where I paid to park in someone’s yard. It rained for 10 mins and my tires would just spin on the wet grass. I haven’t owned a 2wd since and never will own another one.

    4x4 is just like a car insurance or spare tire. It's there when you need it.

    I think you’ll regret it if you don’t have a 4x4 I know I regret it
