What are the advantages of a 4x4 that a 4x2 can't do?
I'm starting to regret that I should have got a 4x4 now.

I own a 4x2 also, but it definitely gets the job done, unless you're driving up muddy or loose gravel hills I've never had a problem, even in snow.

It's all about traction. I can take you some places a 4x2 can't go. But if you don't realy go there, you will never notice. 4x2 can get you 80% of the places, exspecialy with the rear locker. But it's that 20% that will leave ya stuck, wishing you had the 4x4.

Yea I have the rear locker but I don't know how and when to use it. Maybe because I haven't taken it off-roading yet.

You have a 2.7 . It is unlikely that you have a locker.

I 4x4x4 that quote. 25 years experience in getting stuck with 4x4 Rams and Broncos in muck and sand and holes. 2x2 you tend to know what you can do and not do.

Huh? What are you talking aboot?
The mini you turned into a prerunner thing is kinda cool. The lowrider thing might be useful for an RTI ramp. :D

This is TTORA. Tacoma Territory Off-Roader's Association.

I like the best of both worlds my man :D

I second this. I have a body dropped mini and a Tacoma with 33's. Granted I don't wheel hard but I am an avid offroad enthusiast. The mini gets amazing gas mileage and rides smooth as a whistle (bagged with Rx-7 independant rear end). Just fun to cruise while the weather is nice. When winter roles around or for trail rides, I use the Tacoma. Just balancing two vehicles that have equal functionality in their own respect.

Einstein once said "Intelligence is like four wheel drive, it just allows you to get stuck in even more remote places."

As for the low-riders, I just don't understand the allure. More power to you if that's your thing, though.
