want a 4×4 pickup. i like Z71s but a friend told me they are not true 4x4s?

he has a Ford and said he had to pull his brothers Z71 out of the snow . so what do i get ? a Ford?
The reason im being so picky is my wife went to work one day in her honda civic. When she got off it snowed 10inches. She got stuck 3 times. I was snowed in so i was helpless.
When she got home she was trembling and crying.
I vowed to get the her something that would give the best chances of getting her through the snow.

    Your friend is getting picky….But, to be totally four wheel drive, the truck would require LSD or better on both axles, but a Z71 will do what you want. And, it did come with an optional LSD in the rear, and any good garage can install one in the front, too.

    Sorry – LSD limited slip differential

    Some of the newer Chevrolet Colorado models are actually two-wheel drive models with Z-71 badges and stickers. I don’t know why GM did that, dumb I know… That’s probably what your friend meant. I heard they even thought of making two-wheel drive Hummers! Haha. But the original Z-71 badged models were all four-wheel drive models.
