This thread makes me want to trade in all my 4x4s for some 1 wheeler peelers, just so I can remember what I'm missing out on.....

I likes 4 wheel drive so I have low range creeper gears and so I can tread lightly upon the land.

Using 4wd on loose gravel roads with the truck empty also reduces rear tire wear from the Yuge Torques of The Big Diesel, and stops contributing to global washboard corrugations on gravel roads.

Don’t trade. Just disable 4 wheel drive.

You remind me of someone I know in an ATV forum who will argue "his opinion" forever because he believes that his opinion is better than everyone else's.

Like I said before. A 2wd pickup truck is useless in the snow.

I've owned both and I don't understand why anyone would ever want a 2wd pickup.

It's been a little slow around here lately.A little good hearted/friendly truck and camper talk is never a bad thing,is it..

All in fun and friendly.

I use low range in my truck all the time - but don't lock the hubs but rarely. It's that extra gearing I find handy. Low speed maneuvering, especially in reverse, is much easier in low range. Do you have an automatic tranny and have to back up with heavy loads behind the truck? Your tranny will thank you for using low range! Manual transmission? No need to slip the clutch when inching backwards.
