Another astute observation about Texans - They can't handle a little ribbing at their expense.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

A 2wd vehicle sure can be a commuter vehicle and not have much difficulty. A 2wd pickup isn't the smartest choice for a commuter in the winter, but is acceptable with a good (or lucky) driver. You can bet your 2wd would be getting dragged out an awful lot if you took it off the road anywhere when it's anything but dry out.
I use my pickup on the farm. My trailer is parked in a spot that is nearly impossible to get it out without 4wd engaged. I'm regularly out in the pastures or the fields and need 4wd to make it through bad spots or back up the hill.
But, 95% of the population doesn't need a pickup, let alone 4wd. They use 4wd as a talisman that will cure all road ills, and it usually lets them down as they skid into the ditch or another vehicle. As has already been said, 4wd doesn't cure stupid drivers.

Most of the drivers out there would be better off with a front wheel drive car or SUV with snows on the front. My wife has little to no difficulty with the fwd Escape with snowy or icy roads.

I had an 87 4-cylinder 2wd Dakota in high school. When the busses beat everyone out and the lot was slick we'd all do a couple cookies and head for the road. Well, I would, most everyone else was sitting where they skidded to a stop because their now warm tires couldn't get any grip.

I've got an Isuzu Amigo, that thing will go places and jump ruts in low range with the hubs unlocked, that would hang up most full-size 4x4 pick-ups and 4-wheelers.

I'm a Texan and I can handle a ribbing just fine as long as the person doing the ribbing can do likewise. IF you're going to dish it out you better be to receive it back :lol:

Yeah sure ya betcha. I've been everywhere in this fine country and there is no doubt that each region has their quirks.
