#3 of 13 4x4 or 4x2 Dodge Ram 1500

Just trying to compare two pickups at the moment, but cannot find any info on the 4x4 in comparison to the 4x2 2002 model.
We are in a dilema, do we really need a 4x4 will we use it or is the 4x2 good enough for the little off roading we will do? If anyone out there can help and let us know there opinion we would be sooooooo greatful.

Four-wheel drive is not necessary until you need it. If you think you might be getting into to precarious positions off-road, then maybe considering a 4x4 is a good idea. However, there is a fuel penalty and increased maintenance and potential repair costs that will be associated with owning a 4x4.
I have survived 56 New York state winters without ever owning a 4x4. Yes, I've been stuck a few times, but so far the cost of doing so has been far less than actually owning a 4x4.
Good luck with your search.

well if go hunting i would you suggest 4x4 because never know what's at next bind and I have seen lot damage 4x4 an 4x2. you name it seen it happen at least thousand times but its fun at times in tel you have to go to shop for some thing like an axle or a Transmission some thing small like that.
If you go hunting in Texas after it rain yeah your going to need it.

I own a Hemi 2004 1500 quad cab 4X4...Try this... I installed a K & N filter as well as a tornado( I know, might be a gimick... but). I consistantly get 15 MPG running around town and have get 22 MPG strictly on the highway. Seems to work for me... at the rate these gas prices are going, everything helps! Does anyone know of a V chip which might help with better MPG? Does anyone know of a V chip which may help with MPG? email me at nrpettorutocomcast.net.
