Get a set of all terrains to run rear round or snow tires that you will have to swap on and off each year. Either way.

Ehh, don't worry about it. I got through Ohio's Lake Erie effect winter last year with 200 lbs. Never went in a ditch. Did perfect. Only had one day that I got stuck in my driveway. Just make sure you have tread on your tires. I had 4 brand new Mastercraft Avenger G/Ts. Just a good ol' regular all-season.

I can't believe there is snow already. We won't see any that sticks until January.

Umm, not quite sir . . .

We use RWD open diff trucks to haul crap around at the farm year round. Sure it makes things a bit more difficult but probably 25-33% of compact or half ton trucks here are 2WD. We just simply know how to drive with a RWD.

if you need a 4x4 then you went somewhere where you shouldnt have.

i drove a 4.0 L RWD ranger for the last 4 winters and it was better than any front wheel drive car i previously had.

haha this truck is awesome in the snow! 220 lbs in the back along with 4x4 has gotten me through everything so far. Winter is going to be WAY more enjoyable this year.

As far as pics go, I'm too lazy to take my own but here are some from around my area:

What does the american education system have do with how much I know about rear wheel trucks in the snow. I don't know of any public school, in any country, that has a class that talks about the winter time abilities of a RWD drive. Except, maybe if they offer a defensive driving course or driving school.

I'm not gonna turn this thread into a debate about american education but common dude. Did does insulting my education really prove your point? No.

That's probably true most of the time. The only time my dad has used his 4x4 in his truck was in a gravel back road in a snow storm, a private back road actually.

However I needed 4x4 when i was stuck in my driveway and I'm not sure how my driveway qualifies as "somewhere where I shouldn't have been". If I shouldn't be parked in my driveway in the winter let me know, cause I do it a lot, and I don't want to get in trouble.
