I have a 2wd Pickup (TV) and a 4wd SUV (DW's ride). I like that I can eek out a little extra weight capacity because of the 2wd in my truck. I was thinking that my next truck would be a 3/4 ton, just so I don't have to worry about weight capacities as much. When the time comes, I'll be surprised if I can find a 2wd 3/4 ton truck within a reasonable distance from me that has the options I would want. That being said, I would probably go with 4wd simply out of convenience and options at time of purchase. The weather here is very temperate, so I don't have a lot of snow and ice to deal with. We generally only camp in well-developed parks and CG's. So for me, it might be nice to have "just in case" but not really a necessity and when the time comes, I'll probably hunt for a 2wd model first. That won't be for a number of years, so who knows where I'll be when the time comes. My usage model may change completely by then and I'll reevaluate at that time... If I were buying a new truck this week, I would try pretty hard to get it in 2wd.
