We have 4wd simply by accidental circumstances. The TV was 'inherited' so to speak. It's there if I need it, but so far wife refuses to take it off road.

I think it's a good thing to have if it's needed, but so far I just exercise it monthly as Toyota suggests.

2wd /4wd

yeah, I think if I ever win Lotto, I may go out to buy me a new CTD Dodge dually,
(yeah I know they call them Ram but will always be Dodge to me) I think it will be a 2wd with limited slip differential. I'd like to try a dually.
Lower center of gravity and less drive train wear and tear with no transfer case and associated equipment, less weight. I think I read somewhere that a 2wd is suppose to tow better because of this.
Besides, with some weight in the back and set of chains, I have seen duallys pull lots of cars and 4wd's out of ditches in snow situations.
Besides I am not dragging my AS up some fire trail. My current Dodge CTD is 4wd, and it tows excellent. Its never been in snow or salt. Use a Jeep TJ for the snow and fire trail.

I have a new QX56 and ordered the 2wd cause it didn't need 4wd.
Its a rocketship !
No one can tell if its 4wd by looking at it. If its gonna rain, I don't drive the QX in the hay field, unless its on top of the hill. Just know your limitation, no mud bogs.
Maybe one of these days I may hook the AS to the QX, but no sense hurting its transmission when I have a perfectly good truck with plenty of towing capacity for the AS.
Never had a time I have had to put the truck in 4wd with my previous trailer or current AS.
Either way 2wd or 4wd would serve you well. Pick which one fits your budget best. Have a good one !

For my next trick, I will use my new Airstream & Dodge Ram 2500 CTD to make this pile of money disappear.
