I wouldn't have a diesel pick-up that wasn't 4wd. That motor makes it very heavy on front. If you park a 2wd on grass with even a slight slope, you can pee on the rear tires and get it stuck.4wd is one of those "best to have and not need it than to need it and not have it' things.
I only needed 4wd a couple times on my old place. Didn't have it on the truck but I guess the truck and tractor I pulled it out with combined to = 4wd.
My old place was flatland flood plain. I could drive anywhere on 99% of the time without getting stuck, but was the kind of place that had a hardpan on top and if you ever broke thru it, you may have to pull the truck 100 yards before getting back up on top. Down under, had no bottom. 4wd really wouldn't help much as my neighbor found out the hard way more than once driving where I told him he couldn't.
"No worries...I got 4wd!"
"Hey Don, uh.. bring yore tractor...I'm stuck and stuck good!"
Around here though, you'd have to look long and hard to find a used 2wd. Lots of hills and rocks.
