Are you asking 2WD guys, or 4WD guys.
Either way your going to get two different answers.

You can to an extent. Just be smart about it and know the limits of your truck. Oh, and never go out alone.

airing down (deflating your tires) puts more of the tire grip in contact with the drive surface (dirt, rocks, strays...)

Yeah man, just drop all 4 down to about 15psi, bigger footprint=more traction, also a better off road ride. Careful when you jump back on the street, it's gonna be a little wobbly, just air up ASAP.

As Oswego said :Never wheel alone, use common sense, always be prepared, and you should be just fine as long as you know your limits.

I'm 4WD but I never lock it in until I'm stuck or going through unfamiliar holes. It's gonna suck w/o a locking rear end though

As others have said air down. Also don't go 100 on the trail. That is a good way to break parts or crash.

watch the socal section and watch for trail runs. I am hosting a couple runs in big bear but they are a bit out of your trucks league this time.

Dude, throw on a locker (provided that you don't have one already), air down and your good for some trails. When the going gets tough, rocks, body twist, ect, no you won't be as good as a 4x4. Like the poster above said, you need to be smart and know your limits.

A 2wd can do just about anything a 4x4 can do except for major rock crawling...If you are into that....there is a lot more stuff you will need to other than a stock Tacoma 4x4.

The 4x4 does come in handy if you are in heavy snow or mud....Honestly, how may times a year does that happen? And if you are with other guys, they would pull you out if you got stuck anyways. Not a good idea to go on more advanced off-road trails alone anyways.

I have see for pre-runner guys do some pretty crazy stuff. I had both 4x4 and pre-runners. Dont get me wrong...I like 4x4's but the pre-runner fits my needs for 99 percent of my driving. The other 1 percent of the time kick myself and wish I bought a 4x4. Ha.
