Hello, welcome to 2017, you can change from 2wd and 4wd with the turn of a dial and there is no purpose to putting sand in the bed other than appeasing an old habit
Why would you want to mess around with putting weight in the bed before every storm, or driving around with extra weight when you don't need it. I'll bet it's more practical to just flip your drive selector to 4 Auto every time there's snow on the ground. Save yourself the money on sandbags and gas and flip the knob. I've been doing it for years and it works just fine.
Thank you, I really appreciate you welcoming me in to this brand new year that we are celebrating.
I understand the ease of switching back and forth, but was curious if anyone else was adding weight for piece of mind / so they don't have to worry about switching back and forth should conditions change on the fly.
Trust me, I'd rather not have to cruise around with a bunch of weight all winter long, but I also don't want to be breaking the tires loose as soon as things get the slightest bit slippery.
