2013 pre runner 4x4 or 4x2?

Im new here, I was a member of toyota nation as a proud corolla owner (09 MGM Corolla s with 24,000) I am selling that to upgrade to a tacoma. I have found the one i want a white 2013 pre runner sport package 4x4. My question is... the 4x4 worth the extra 3-4,000 the stealership will cost me? i plan to off road as much as i can but im also a college student trying to save money. so should i go with the pre runner 4x4 or 4x2? thanls for the help in advance!

pre runner is only 2 wheel drive.

depending what kind of offroading you do a pre runner OR (has a locker) may be sufficient but most guys will recommend a 4wd if your hardcore offroading.

just get a 4wd. i know you're on a budget, but you might regret not getting the 4wd later down the road

sorry the trd sport package is 4x4 right? the locker also comes on a 4x4 model but without the hood scoop. I like the hood scoop

4x4 comes in both the sport and off-road packages. If you like the scoop then pre-runner sport or 4x4 sport.
You would have to evaluate how serious you will be going off-road I guess. I only use 4x4 for snow and switched to the 4x2 pre-runner with no regrets. Cheaper and saves gas.

my friend has a 2012 pre runner sport 4x2 with king front suspension and all terrain tires he says his truck handles the snow very well. the insurance difference is literally 9$
i plan to take it out almost every weekend if possible, no long travel... not yet anyways. so just basic fun in the dirt i guess

Get a 4x4. The extra money will be worth it every time you need 4x4. Trust me.

I was involved in a car accident a few years back that left me with some permanent back problems so I received settlement money for it, that's how I'm buying it. I'm trying to save money because I work 3 jobs and live on my own

Not to seem like your parents or something but you should quit a couple jobs and use the settlement money to pay bills.

Buy a reliable older car for now.

i feel like i know exactly what i want i just need to find the right price for it
