Winter driving

I'm new to the diesel world so I have a question about driving in 4 wheel drive. My old 87 Toyo truck gave top speed at 45. No where in my 97 owner's manuel does it talk about speed in 4 wheel drive. With snow coming next week what is top speed in 4 wheel high in the snow. Thanks for any help.

In my 02, last year I drove down the interstate in the snow at 60ish. Cant remember exactly but I could have went faster, I was just being safe(it was 3 in the morning and no cars on the road.

I've gone up to 75mph in 4wd on snowy roads. Another you might wanna do coming from the Yota' is lug the engine. If you're on slippery stuff in 2wd and come into boost you'll spin very easy.
