I have a prerunner, so all my off roading is in a 2WD.
That being said, there are plenty of senic trails you can take with a 2WD with good ground clearance and good tires. As previously stated, if you have a locker and aren't afraid to get on the gas a little more, you can go on quite a few trails provided you know your vehicle's limitations.
I'm still exploring places in So Cal (Anza Borrego) that are 2WD friendly, however when I lived in AZ I knew of a few trails that were awesome for 2WD trucks like Montana Mountain, Vulture Mine, and 4-Peaks.
ok well i guess "wheeling" was the wrong term. but yes trails. i guess im looking to see how far people have pushed their prerunners or other 2WD trucks. ive seen plenty of people at Cow mountain in norcal out-wheel 4WD.
well just for shits and giggles here goes nothin. so i was wheelin some trails with my friends when i decided to put it in 2wd to mess around real quick, then when it was time to get out of the trail i forgot that i put it in 2 wheel and thought that my front wheels were not getting any power. it took me about 45min to do what should have been done in 10 min because i was running around in 2H instead of 4L. I was spinning tires and hitting rocks and trees because i had to take less steep hills that had a lot more trees and rocks in the way just so i could get out. needless to say always check to make sure your in 4wd before you assume your 4wd isnt working -__- and no i was not drunk, i was just stupid. and i did it all with an open diff.
Can someone give me pointers on where to go tomorrow at Rowher Flats? I’d like to make my way up to Bouquet but I’ll be alone in the 4Runner. Just tires and sliders. I need a detailed trails map if anyone can offer one.
It’s OK if you’re not an automotive engineer. Of course, if you are, this probably isn’t for you because here are 10 basic things every motorist should be able to do. How many of them are you capable of?
