By the way, up here I like a 4WD truck, not for some kind of fantasy of crawling over the rocks I'll never even see, but for driving on bad and back roads in bad weather. One of the nicest vehicles I ever had for this (despite some engine issues and rust which are extraneous) was that 1978 Ford F-150. A 4WD with a short box and a rack for longer stuff. It would go anywhere and pull just about any load, and though nominally a half-tonner, could carry a ton.

Make an electric one like that and I'd be inclined to snap it up even though it would likely be an extravagance.
