My father-in-law is wanting to purchase a new truck: diesel 4Dr 3/4ton , make doesn't matter. But, as we will be relocating to Colorado (Woodland Park, 8,400ft elev.) he wants to know is 4WD needed for the winter months or will 2WD be fine? Thanks for any help and/or information.
There are people that survive there with 2 wheel drive trucks. So it is doable. But I wouldn't do it. The road between Woodland Park and Colorado Springs alone is enough to make you want 4x4 in the winter. And that's the best road out there.
Beautiful area. When you visit, take a trip up Pike's Peak.
i live in canada, we get -30 celcius up here, and someyears worse then other for snow and ice, but i have to be honest 2 years ago we got 5metres snow, wake up in the morning and see 20 inches of snow on the floor, believe me ull want the 4wd
1 Toyota Yarris less on your roads Thanks to me I didnt even feel him hitting me but once i saw him slowly being eating by my JEEP i got pissed he scratched my bumper and wheel.
Yes you're going to want 4WD on a truck like that regardless. My '88 Silverado 7.4L was 2WD and the only thing that held me back from not keeping it. Even in the train it had a tendency to slip around a little bit.
