People use 4WD in the snow and wet roads all the time, which is why such trucks exist in the marketplace. To say never use it unless on loose surfaces may be correct, but not realistic in my opinion.

I limit my 4WD use as much as possible, two sand tubes over the rear axle helps.

My multiple aerodynamic improvements; front chin spoiler, roof cab wing, and rear spoiler all help to keep her on the road at speed.
