Backing my camper up an incline on gravel is almost impossible as well as everyone i know around here. So ether your truck is far superior to mine or you you are a much better driver than me. I raced stockcars for 15yrs and pulled all over the country, ive needed 4 wd several times. It maay use a small amount more fuel but do you buy a tow vehicle for milage? All i can say is you just must be better than me.
I agree with your mileage statement. Websters definition of oxymoron is good mileage tow vehicle!

Another reason I have a 4x4 is resale value. In North Idaho dealers don't even want to take a 2wd in on a trade as they would be very hard to sell.

I'm a worse driver than you Toolman, I guess. My 2wd F250 actually wouldn't move on the flattest part of our drive in the snow/ice until I put studded tires on it. Guess I'll practice pulling folks out of the ditch with it until I get it right. When I learn how, I'll give you the secret. May take a while, so you better keep your 4wd.

I didn't even know that they made F250's in a 2 wheel drive. In Eastern Washington one would never see that.

They actually make trucks without 4x4?? HaHa... I wouldn't have one without it. Get it. We have used ours in wet conditions backing the tt. Besides, if you ever get a boat the 4 x4 works well on boat launches too.

Altar, "I didn't even know that they made F250's in a 2 wheel drive. In Eastern Washington one would never see that." That truck came to Colorado by way of Cousin Dave in Medford.

I've lived in Medford. They don't get that much snow.

I never have a problem when pulling up in a steep hill because I have a 4wd. It really needs the 4wd.

My old F250 would get stuck on wet grass. Ever since I've had 4x4's. The only problem with 4x4s is a lower GVWR due to the added weight of the additional drive train.
