Tim, Thats an item that most people dont think about, and should if off roading in a Prerunner. Personally, 1.5' is too narrow. I keep a peice big enough to cover the bottom of my bed. A blanket works also.

4wd in sand

all i gotta say is...get the 4wd and NEVER second guess. its worth it. iv been stuck in places which id never thought i would. all i have to do is click it into 4wd and i feel like a lotus on a hot track with sticky tires...traction all day...that is priceless. its fun messing around in 2wd until i get stuck. then just drop it into 4wd if all else fails. its great. good luck

I figure if I get stuck in sand, I can leave the truck in drive and set the cruise at 10MPH and get out to push. When its free all I gotta do is get inside before it hits something.

Had a 6spd 4x4 wanted an auto beacuse I didn't care for the 6spd and wanted the Pre-runner beacuse I don't need the 4x4. I never offraod and I'm not in Germany any more so no more snow and lighter/better gas mileage.

Well I am afraid to take a brand new truck off roading and getting it all scratched up etc. Call me crazy. This one has the tow pkg also and I plan on towing my BMW from TX to VA next week, hope I don't mess it up by doing that. Any I have already done a 3" lift done at the dealer and added 20" chrome wheels and a Kenwood 8120 in dash nav. I plan on adding the TRD intake and exhaust later and maybe the super charger next year. I want to do a few cosmetic things like the black headlight mod but I'm too squeemish to pull the headlight housings apart. I also want to tint the tail lights.

Yeah I wish you could just buy the headlights already backed out. I also want to add HIDs and upgrade the sound system. When I had the Kenwood installed the sound quailty went down hill big time, it really sounds worse thatn the stock system. Oh and I forgot to mention I have my 4 wheeler for off roading

i have always loved flowmaster, and the 40 is an awesome muffler. i got it for sound only, so any performance with it would be bare minimal. some people will say it drones in the cab, but i can say, that nope..........no drone as far as im concerned. you can barely tell its there on the interstate. at idle, it has a little tone, but when you get on it.........it growls awesomely!
