Not even then... We get plenty of snow here (up north anyway) and my 2wd truck with a few hundred pounds of sand in the back has done fine. I think the stick helps though....

4wd also holds its value better... though domestic rangers don't have it the same can be said for diesel trucks

thats probably what most of us have ( i assume MOST of the 4wd rangers out there have open diffs) for what i use my ranger for probably could get by with 2wd...this is my first 4wd anything ...the only thing u need to think about although harder to lose a 4wd on the road, if u do lose control harder to regain control

Depends on what kind of off-roading you do, i am pretty sure this is a 2wd truck, and it owns everyones on here:

Haha. Well the original question said 'off roading'. He didn't explain whether it was mudding, crawling, or dezert racing. I'm going for the 2wd Camburg Race Edge FTW! ^^^^
