However after doing some intensive research on the web and also e-mailed to a couple of R/C stores, I have now concluded that there is no such thing in the market today. All stock 4WD gas trucks are only single speed unlike their nitro counterparts. I am wondering why??

Out of the different brands available, it looks like that the Redcat is the most popular brand in North America. The Redcat Rampage 4WD monster truck seems to be a very good choice. Their price is very reasonable (costs almost the same as a decent 1/8 scale nitro truck) and parts are cheap and easily accessible online in Canada or in the U.S. Their hop-up parts are not that expensive too. There are also rumours on the web saying that redcat will soon have a 2-speed upgrade for their gasser trucks. Not sure when will they be available though??

About building a gasser truck myself, unfortunately I am not the kind of person handy enough to be able to modify and install a chainsaw engine on to a truck. I am the kind of person who enjoys the playing part of this hobby more than the building part. Anything RTR or RTF is my favourite nowadays.

Anyway thanks for all the comments. I think I am getting a Redcat Rampage 4WD truck very soon.
I have a Redcat Rampage MT. It is four wheel drive, however, replace the two main-drive dogbones, because mine broke during break-in! Also, the plastic drive gears were ruined; I replaced the plastic gears with metal gears and replace the stock pipe with a tuned pipe.

There are some other minor upgrades, but, any vehicle would benefit from upgrades!

Other than that, the Rampage is big, fun, and gas/oil is cheaper than nitro!

My suggestion would be to... "go for it"!
