I love the regular cab 4x4's with a 5 speed, would make a sweet little wheeler. I say go for it!!

On a side note, if you can manage to go down from 75 to around 65MPH, maintain your truck properly and go easy on the throttle, you can get almost 24mpg with the v6 4x4...and have more power to play with when you want...but no regular cab v6's (lame). Mine just got 23.6/345 miles and 23.7 in 355miles using shell 91, highway miles.

I imagine if you went around 65 with the reg cab 4-banger you would get 28-30mpg though.

I had no clue that there is a 4cyl 4x4 AC...the power features definitely plays a factor now. Anyone know the what kind of price difference I would be looking at between the RC and the AC?

Thanks everyone for saving me from hours on google like always!

Just hope that I can get a good amount for my truck when I go to sell it.

If you get the 4x4 AC and add much in the way of tires or armor, you'll be wanting more power.

4x4 AC is in the 22-25 range, depending on your negotiation skills.

Do it!

Stock is 245/75R16

I'm running 265/75R16 and it feels fine.

OP list price for new I4 4x4's are about 20-21 for the regular cabs (manual trans) and about 25k for the access cabs (manual trans). You could step it up to the V6 4x4 access cab for about a list price of 27k. Of course these are for 2011's and nobody pays list price... But it gives you the idea.

I have a 2008 Reg cab 4x4.

I average 17mpg with my 16in aftermarket rims with all season tires. Spectacular in snow and other weather. (I do about 100 miles city and maybe 150 miles highway per week.)
Plenty of power in the low gears.
I have the towing brake light wires.
Stock system is alright too.
I love the truck and I suffer from the mod bug...

I picked up my tacoma for 14k with trading in my last car.

As far as the reg. cab 4x4 the power isn't bad in gears 1-3. It's GREAT in 1st. I'd probably stick to the manual over the automatic if you're concerned about the power. However, the automatic gives you bucket seats and a center console, so it's worth considering. Test drive them both.

Stock tires are what you see pictured above, 245/75r/16 on steel wheels. I'm getting 18.5 mpg on 95% city driving. Highway is much better. I'd estimate 23 or so is what I'm getting if I keep it around 65.

Good luck.
I kick myself almost everyday that I wasnt more patient and didnt wait for access cab... Bucket seats, power doors and windows and most importantly extra interior space!

If you get I4, do NOT get automatic. Even with the manual its not a powerhouse and the auto has one gear less.

If you're driving in snow or offroading yes get the 4x4. Honestly if you can get away with a 5 lug its lighter and is going to get better fuel economy. I think a 4 cylinder automatic 5 lug would be perfect. Shifting all day long to go nowhere gets a little tiresome.

P.S. How much do you want for your truck?
