    Buying this 2010 4x4 DC trd off road truck was my first time buying a 4x4 truck, and I have a few questions,...

    Are all taco's more difficult to fully turn the steering wheel when the 4x4 is engaged?

    And is it more difficult to turn when going in reverse witht the 4x4 engaged?

    again I have never driven a 4x4 truck in my life up until now, I am still learning the handling of my truck, and any tips or answers you more experienced guys have (on driving 4x4 that is) :D would be greatly appreciated.

    Congrats on your new truck!

    Yes, when you are engaged in 4WD you have the front and rear wheels gripping instead of just the rear when you are in 2WD so it should be more difficult to turn in 4WD. This is especially true if you are on pavement rather than deep snow or mud. I noticed this a lot when I drove a 4WD in the snow.

    I hope this helps. I am no expert but have had some experience with this one!
