i plan going get a new truck come labor day. Im steppin up to 3/4 ton diesel. I decided that because im goin to keep this new truck for a good while, i might as well get what i want. the thing that 4x4 is a few thousand extra. Being i live down south, is it necessary? i fgured i could use the 4wheel drive when pulling the gooseneck dump trailer my uncle left to me( i currently cant pull it wit my 1/2 ton) all opinions welcome.
