I have a 2wd. My only complaint is the open diff
I think some sort of limited slip should come standard on everything
But it seems people are more concerned with seat heaters and tv's behind the front seats to come standard. Ha
In the past year I have had a used for 4wd maybe once or twice. But I managed fine without it
'94 XLT 2wd 4R70W 3.55 open diff. I like my truck and don't mind the open diff. However, there is no way that it will ever replace a 4wd in a bad traction situation. Been there, done that. That is why I would never get in the sand or mud on purpose. I don't have a winch or come-along and would definitely require the assistance of a AWD to pull me out
All you need to do to find out how much traction you really have is to apply too much gas when starting up-hill on wet pavement....
'94 F150 XLT, 5.0, AT w/overdrive
'09 C6, Z51 package 6 speed 436hp 400 tq.
15 speed Paramount Mt Bike (older than the truck)
10 speed Somec road bike (older than the Paramount)
My 2wd is in my signature. I've only owned 2wd LS differential vehicles so I don't know any different.
I never had a need for 4wd. I can't justify the extra cost, gas mileage, maintenance, etc.
We rarely get snow in Texas. We get slippery ice. Someone once explained to me that 2wd is better on "black ice." I don't exactly remember why, but it made sense at the time.
98% percent of my driving is on roads.
Looking at the picts. of the trucks on this thread: Y'all have some nice trucks!
I'd post a pict. of mine, but am not sure how? I go to the "insert image" button, then a pop-up asks me for the "url" of my image. I can't seem to copy and paste either?
