    I'm looking to buy a 95 1500 with 2wd. How much worse is 2wd in the winter? I live in NE Ohio. It can get bad in the winter. I've had a 4 cyl 2wd s10 and it could be scary in the snow.

    I live in Michigan, I had a 98 sonoma 2wd and never had any issues with it in the snow. I slid into a ditch one time, but was able to put my foot out of the door and rock myself out. I also a had a 2002 silverado that was 2wd. I only had a hard time after I messed up the G80 locker in the rear end. If the 1995 that you are looking at has a locker or posi and you know how to drive in snow you should not have any problems.

    Thanks. Yeah between work and college I have to drive quite a bit. I just wasn't sure of how it would do in the winter.

    The best secret weapon Ive ever used in the winter was a couple bags of sand in the bed behind the wheel wells, when you finally run out of traction then youve still got sand to help out.

    good tires, a posi of some sort in the rear and tons of weight in the bed and you'll be fine.

    Make sure you've got good tires. Even in 2wd with weight on the rear.
