Good to know. As you mentioned, we also get ice with our snow, so it can get really slippery. But, I wouldn't need 4x4 more than 10 times a year, so the $3000 cheaper truck, less wear items and better gas mileage appeals to me. Plus, I kind of like lowered trucks.
All of my experience with RWD in snow has been without traction control (93 Ranger, 88 Aerostar and 94 Mustang GT), so I was hoping you guys would say that the truck would still be able to be driven without 4wd.
