Re: Why do people buy 4x2 Jeeps?
I always had 2wd vehicles, before the Jeep I had a 2wd Sierra as I had always thought "it doesn't rain here, it doesn't snow here, whey do I need it?" After getting stuck a few times in the truck and convincing myself Jeeps should be 4x4 I got my GC with QTII. While the truck was fun in the easy to break the rear end loose and slide sideways sort of way I don't see myself owning another 2wd truck/suv. With the truck I had to be careful with turns and heavy throttle to catch holes in traffic or the rear end would slide out. No such issues with the full-time 4x4/AWD Jeep, just gun it and go. Also has come in handy with the freak storms that hit the last two years and neighbor's 4x2 truck was stuck in his driveway. My mom was even looking at GCs and I convinced her that if she got one she should get at a minimum get QTI so it would have that 4x4 badge for resale. Whether or not they plan to leave the asphalt few people want a 4x2 Jeep to begin with and even fewer want a used one (around here anyways).
