When does one really need a 4x4?

That's kinda what I was thinking.. Until he said "snowboarding trips"..

I live north of Boston MA and after driving around wasting gas since Y2K,
I decided that I liked the load carrying ability of my SUV, but I didn't really need that gas sucking 4 wheel drive. (Plus it needed some repairs and regular lube changes).
So, I yanked that rear wheel drive junk out and took a big load off the engine..
