Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There have been big pickup trucks forever (dating back to before WWII). The difference is that they were very clearly intended for work - no back seat, no indoor features, just functionality.

 On 4wd I'm not a driver but I've spent a lot of time on snowy mountain roads as a passenger, and they're much easier to get out of a drift, and much less likely to skid. It might be true that snow tires are better than 4wd without them, but everybody in a snowy climate has winter tires regardless of what they're driving.  Chains are even better, but they're an absolute pain to be constantly putting on and taking off.
