    If you dont put your truck suv in deep snow or mud very often dont get 4×4. Plan on spending a nice amount of money if something goes wrong with ur 4×4. If u have good tires on a 2wd u shouldnt have any probs. Also 4×4 isnt going to help u re sell that much not everyone is looking for a 4×4

    4wd has more moving parts and more weight. If you do not need it you should not buy one. 2wd will get better mileage, cost less to maintain, and generally ride better.

    2wd won’t necessarily last longer but it will be cheaper to buy and fewer parts to wear out. If you don’t need 4wd don’t buy one.

    You have to think of resale value as well. 2 wheel drive will fetch much less money as many people value 4×4 for more than just snow.. Mud , ice, rain, off-road camping trips, or that trip to snow country. Its fine if you dont need it, but figure on selling for several thousand less when you sell
