Have to agree on the 4x4; Trucks without it ARE useless IMHO. All I can say is, it's really nice to not have to worry about it. My driveway (I use the term loosely) washes out every year, and I put it in 4 wheel drive and move out. Oh, and I have a Dodge Ram 1500 Megacab 4x4 with towing package and it will pull what you are talking about easily~it's a 1/2 ton on a 3/4 ton frame. They aren't quite as expensive, I don't think (bought mine new, now its 4 years old) and I got a Hemi and gas engine to boot!! They ought to be a dime a dozen; around here they are for sale EVERYWHERE. (just sad)
