I've owned two 2wd trucks. One was an old F250 gas. The other was a newer 2wd F350 dually.

That F350 dually would get stuck in grass fields, with weight or not. Since then I've had 4wd trucks and love it. One was a 4wd dually with a terrain tires and it was hard getting that stuck

Note: I have to drive offroad alot on dirt trails, flat grass fileds (soft) and grass with steep grades.

2 or 4wd... just depends what you're using the truck for. My brother has a 2wd Tacoma Prerunner and that thing impresses me (rear locking diff).
