It's my first post, and I just got a 2013 Tacoma. It is a single cab, manual transmission, 4x4, 4 cylinder.
This is my first 4x4 vehicle, and I have a question after reading the owners manual. It says that 4wd should not be used on hard, dry surfaces to prevent wear. It also says that owners should drive the truck for 10 miles per month in 4wd to keep the front end components lubricated.
I don't know if I will make it to the snow or beach every month, and I was wondering what some of you guys in the same situation do for this. Should I just make time each month to get out into the mud, or dirt, or down around the river? I have no problem doing that, but I just wanted to get some input from you guys.
I appreciate the suggestions.
