Second that, 2wd trucks are worth nothing at resale time, I have been looking for another 4x4 for plowing and keep seeing the 2wds for thousands and thousands less than comparable 4x4s. We actually do a lot of plowing in 2wd, but those few little times a snow you get stuck, you just grab 4x4 and go again. I plow in a F350 4x4 dually dump with a 10' v-spreader that weighs at least 1500 alone and occasionally have trouble getting around, with a full salter, no problem but that is too much weight to push with. So 4x4 is handy there for plowing with an empty salter. There are a handful of guys in town that still plow with old ford and chevy 2wd one tons, and a couple operations with plows on the cabovers.
