06 PreRunner? Help!

I'm new here(and new to Tacoma's, just started getting into them), not sure if this is the right place to be posting this but w/e.

So I'm 16, and looking for a very nice used Tacoma (2005-whatever) for around $16,000-$18,000ish..I prefer double cab/TRD Sport but I'm not sure I will be able to find one in my budget range. At my local Toyota dealer, there is a spotless 2006 Toyota Tacoma Access Cab PreRunner(2WD) TRD Off-Road package for $17,887, it only has 33,000 miles. Do you guys recommend this? I have a dirtbike and I would like to put it in the bed and when I go dirtbiking in this place up in Washington, its a long dirt/gravel trail I drive on to get to the tracks. I was wondering if you all have any info/tips to give me, like how bad is 2WD and should I wait it out and try to find a TRD Sport/Doublecab? Or is this the best I'm gonna find. I really love the hood scoops and wish this had it. Btw, it's 'Speedway Blue.' Will the 2WD effect me, I won't be using it for extreme off-roading, just occasional grass/dirt/gravel type road.

Thanks for any help/info in advance!

If you're just going to be sticking to gravel/dirt roads then really any Tacoma will do for you. TRD OffRoad has the rear differential locker in the back (e-locker) that when combined with even 2WD makes the truck extremely capable even in more intense offroad situations. Being a PreRunner the truck has a beefier suspension (the same as used on 4x4 Tacomas) so the truck would be plenty capable for what you're wanting to use it for.

Thats a nice truck 4 sale. You might want to check on KBB just to make sure you dont get ripped off. I have a prerunner and sometimes (like last night) I really really wished I had 4X4. If u dont need it then dont get it, but im pretty sure later on down the road your going to get more and more into your truck and u will want to go off roading more.

Sounds like that is a good deal, but check to make sure there is nothing wrong with it.

Since you live in Oregon, I'd recommend getting a 4x4 if possible.
