    i dont know why it bothers me, but every time i see someone says "2x4" i always say "its 4x2" because well its actually 4x2, not 2x4,
    a 2wd vehicle is not a piece of lumber

    whenit comes to vehiclesand technical info i always try to be correct about it, i think its sad that ppl dont care, or dont know how to label a 2wd properly, as per manufacturer's data.
    same with things like SWB vs. LWB, theres some wierdos out there who call LWB long widebed and SWB short wide bed, but normal pplknow its long wheel base and short wheel base as per manufacturers data


    i just have a thing about corrdct temrinology and such when it comes to vehicles' models and series designations, and so forth,

    dunno, lol

    That is very common on the west coast. People Call Fleetsides "Wide" beds and stepsides "Narrow" beds. They also call cars/trucks "rigs" more than anything else. Growing up in IL a semi was tyipically called a rig but not cars...

    Who cares what they call a 2wd truck? If they're driving one they're obviously stupid anyway. They should just call a 2wd truck half of a truck. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
