How can you tell if a pickup truck is 4×4?

How can you tell if a pickup truck is 4×4 or 4×2 by just looking at it?

Thanks.

    look under it, if it has a front differential its 4×4, some will be straight axle like the rear axle but some might have IFS (Independent Front Suspension), you’ll still see a front differential but you’ll see a half shaft on each side going from the differential to each spindle, also of course will see a front drive shaft from the differential to the transfer case, the transfer case will be right behind the transmission

    also the front end will be lifted a little more than a 2wd version of the same truck, rear will be the same but the front will be a little higher on a 4×4
