All Pickups have a maximum GCWR. And that includes the weight of the vehicle. And the vehicle includes the weight of the drive train.
A 4X4 drive train weighs significantly more.
If you need one, get one. Down here, in Florida, we see what we call '7-eleven' trucks all over the place. All jacked up, big tires, shiny, expensive wheels, etc..... And never seen a mud hole or a patch of snow during their entire existence.
I guess it's okay as a hobby. But we in here already have a hobby.
If you need one, get one. If you don't -- Don't.
Oh, we call them '7-eleven' trucks because you can drive by any 7-eleven late on Friday and Saturday night and see them all parked there, bench-racing, talking stuff and telling lies.
