bmxer - It wouldn't be a Jeep without 4wd ..... that's not what my VIN says....
I'll never make fun of a 2wd Jeep, not my style. But when I think Jeep, I think 4wd.

Oh I have a skyslider too...I love it. It's starting to get used again. The snow stopped me As long as its 40*+ it's probably open.

Bmxer524- it's all good. I know what you said was in fun... no hurt feelings. I'd like to think after all the years I've lived my skin is thicker than that.

I would have gotten a 4WD if I could have found one in as great shape as this 2WD is. I'm kinda OCD when it comes to my cars.

I don't blame you. It's a big investment. Gotta make sure what you buy will hold up and meet your needs.

I bought my 09 for the same reason. It was immaculate

Same here- no issues with it at all (except for the roof). Immaculate paint, no dings, dents, scratches, rust. Serviced at the dealer for everything. While I usually prefer doing most maintenance myself, it just means that the car has been almost over-serviced.

The positives of a 2wd, cost less to maintain, cost less to purchase. If you live in an area where it doesn't snow much and no major hills that's fine. Even snow on a very small scale just switch the tires to snow tires and you'll be ok.
I have 4wd because of where I live and used it quite often this winter because of weather and my tires are pretty well worn.

Honestly I prefer driving a rwd drive vehicle over a fwd vehicle 99% of the time

Poncherello - living in South Texas, the 1 snow event (maybe) we get a year is the day to stay home. even the highway department doesn't know what to do. if I lived in the mountains or snow country, of course I'd gone with a 4WD.... but not in South Texas, even our beaches are of different kind of sand.. packs well and is almost impossible to get stuck. heck I've even taken my CTS on the beaches with no problems. I was fortunate, the previous owner was a woman who used the dealership for all servicing. and as such, I got the service records... which I thought was pretty cool.

I have a brother who has taken a Nissan 350z and a lowered Mini Cooper S onto Galveston and done just fine. Really no need for 4x4 in Texas. Now, up in Lubbock at school, it might be a problem a few days out of the year but I stay in those days anyway
