2wd absolutely does not work for me. Boat ramps get iced up November through Feb. when hunting and its always a blast having absolute perfect traction when we have good snow amounts. Also nice to have 4wd to helpo out the old lady and my friends when they need it. Plus I cant stand the look of a 2wd versus a 4wd.

A lot of this depends on where you are and the kind of stuff you do (or plan to do) with your truck. If you're pulling a single axle trailer or a light tandem on mainly flat area, then a 1/2 ton in a 2wd will most likely suit your needs. However, if you plan to pull heavier loads, a 3/4 ton would be a good investment, and if you even think you might need 4wd, then by all means, shoot for it.

All my whole family had ever known (Grandpa, Dad, myself...) until 5 years ago or so was 2wd, and I'll say I've definitely never regretted 4wd at all. Then again, it's all mountains around here, so I use the 4x4 several times a week in the summer just to get up a couple of driveways...

One thing I'd recommend...don't go for a diesel unless you really need/want it, the cool factor will wear off quick in the face of the higher maintenance costs!
