Chains suck ass. If you can at all use the 4x4. Its going to be cold dirty snowy, and its much easier to flip a switch then it is to put on chains. Dont do it, it sucks really--its not worth the gas or any other reason.

if its not supposed to be snowing take the 2wd

if there isnt any snow on the ground where they tell you to chain up, tell em its 4wd.

ive rarely chain up and my 2 most recent trucks for the last 3 years have been 2wds.

Chains can get you out of some really bad situations....but like others say they make you earn it. IIWY and I was stuck on the idea of taking the tacoma I'd take cables and put sand bags in the back. You dont really need chains on top of bladed snow....and yes cables are easier to deal with.

Theres no snow in the forecast until Wednesday. If you go home before then, you should be fine. I just went to Big Bear a few weekends back and all the roads were clean and dry. The only issue I saw with a 2wd tacoma that was in the cabin next to us was them trying to get out of their snowy driveway. They struggled a little bit, but eventually got out.
