I needed to load my TT for my departure tomorrow and south Texas is being inundated with the wet stuff. I wouldn't be without my 4wd.

Yes they would - that would be my DH. Same guy that took me and my daughter to a cat show and ask the owner of a blue ribbon cat if it could catch mice. When the owner replied, "I don't think so"; DH responded with, "Then what good is it". He's like that.

I have used 4 low to back up his with the Fiver. Today I am driving all over town in 4 High with the Snow we have. Never be without it, owned one truck with 2 wheel drive. That was it.

I do lock the rear wheels at times if I feel I am going to spin on gravel, that is separate from 4 wheel on my truck.

Once you own a will never go back. I don't put mine in 4WD until i need it...if you put it in might not be able to get out of the situation. My experience(for the most part in mud) unless you are playing in the time you realize you are stuck in 4WD...then it's to late....2WD then to 4WD.. you might get out.
Ice and snow are an exception to this rule of course.
I agree Iwannacamp. I was taught early to go anywhere you want in 2WD and use 4WD to get out if necessary. That philosophy has served me very well over the years.

I pulled my neighbor out of his yard several times, 2wd 3500 crew cab, I had 1500 4x4. I moved up to 1500hd and he also moved into 4wd 3500. one winter I pulled him home, but he was in his z28 then.

Living in Northern Ohio 4WD is kind of a must in a truck for the winters and beside its always fun to go out and play in the mud too.
