I have a Prerunner has surprised myself recently when I made it in some places where the other Tacos had to use 4wd. I chuncked up my back tires really bad and had to be towed up a bunch of places, but one part made me feel on top of the world when I did it with the rear locked. I have been in some bad spots and have had to be towed, but there has been other spots that I have been able to get out of because of the rear locker and All Terrian tires.
The two things you need to get through some tough spots are tires and a rear locker. Know your limits and go with at least one other person if you aren't familiar with the area.

Prerunners FTW! In So Cal its (almost) all you need. Spindles, good tires, and a locker and I've gotten almost everywhere I've wanted to go. The trick is to go with someone with 4wd and you're golden.

Hey I'm glad I found this thread. The areas of TX my friends have recently taken me, have just a slight bit of mud mainly semi rocky hill country. I just purchased my 11' trd sport last week. I notice how you say the thing about the rear locker. My truck didn't come with the electric one. Before I start investing in suspensions and other off road goodies, Would it be a good idea to invest in a rear locker?

Or you could sell it and buy a 4x4




But seriously, I off roaded in my 2wd open diff 2004 4runner for a while with the only mod being geolander at-s tires in the rear (no not even both front and back because the front ht tires still had some tread). Not that it mattered cuz it was 2wd. but nonetheless, I did almost everything my friends did (hills may have taken a couple tries but I would get them). Before I had the tires in the rear I would get stuck all the time but as soon as I got the all terrains I never got stuck even in deep sand and creek crossings. That being said it was a 4runner which has more weight over the rear axle but still, you would be amazed what you can do in 2wd.

I offroad in my prerunner every chance I get. I should have bought a 4*4 but Ive put to much money into mine to get a new one now. But my next one will be a 4*4 for sure. My buddy in a F150 with a 6 inch lift and big MTs went off roading with me. I followed him through the mud the sand and the hills. I never got stuck. I have good tires though with 300 pounds of sand bags in the bed, and there wasnt any rock crawling or anything. I was surprised at what I could do. and if I did get stuck he would have been able to pull me out. Have fun and make sure someone is there who can help if you get stuck. Im waiting for the day my prerunner cant handle something but it hasnt happened yet.

Well i noticed yesterday i started going downhill on a way too sloped Rocky surface. I tried to reverse slowly then have it a bit of gas my drive wheel just spun on a rock. Now I have chunks of rubber missing out of that tire. I eventually want a pre runner type set up with mid or long travel suspension but figure a locker would be a good start point.
