Compact pickup, 2wd or 4wd for the Northeast???
I'm a first time truck buyer and I'm not sure how badly I need 4wd. I plan on getting a compact, extended cab truck with a V6 and other than that I'm as yet undecided. I'll be using the truck for light hauling (furniture, landscaping materials, mountainbikes, etc), commuting 30 miles (all highway) to and from work, and likely won't be offroading more than as a way to get to the trailhead. I live in the southern tier of NY and after maybe the most mild winter on record I'm trying to decide if I'll need 4wd. Any experienced truck buyers care to offer some advice? Can I get away with winter tires and some weight over the axle? Any help is appreciated.
