    Just trying to figure out why someone who does not like 2wd would cruise the 2wd site. Its okay though, gives me something to laugh at and I'm glad this site values 2wd Blazer owners also.

    Do you 4x2 guys get stuck a lot?
    I had to pull a guy in a Nissan 2wd out of the mud yesterday. What happened is he was trying to drive between the ruts the big trucks leave and he got in one anyway and his undercarriage just SUNK into the mud/rut.
    On the other hand, I usually leave my NP205 in 2hi except for steep hillclimbs and mud.
    The only way I could get stuck in 2wd was to (on purpose) put the rear wheels in a mudhole and spin them to dig a deeper rut. Getting out was just a matter on switching to 4wd.
    It seems to me that with the exception of deep mud and steep hillclimbs, 2wd is just as good as 4wd. The big difference is simply ground clearance.
    Any thoughts?

    Hey Mike, I don't off-road a lot in my 2WD yet, it will be mostly a pre-runner/chaser for the desert. The main difference for a 2WD is the lack of low range so everything has to be taken at speed instead of crawlin' up. Most 2WD guys here are building killer street trucks, so thrashin' around in the mud or dirt isn't an issue.
