    You can't see over the scoop so you won't know where you're going. Offroad>Sport

    I'm not a midget , dwarf or circus freak , seeing over the hood is not a problem .

    I was just kidding...take a look at my first post in the thread. The day I die is the day I agree that 2wd is as good as 4wd, for the record.

    You won't forget... (maybe) There is an indicator light and the first time you make a turn, you will feel the resistance (some call 'binding')... You won't break anything if you do pop onto the highway while still in 4WD... I have done it on accident... nothing broke.

    OK

    You are right

    I sit on a phone book and have wooden blocks tied to my shoes to reach the pedals

    How else can anyone see over the hood scoop ?

    That is the only way. Once you do that wodden block-phone book mod the sport becomes superior to the offroad. Although the offroad has the almighty elocker grenade diff that is highly sought after.

    Yes you got bad info. Check out what the University of Toyota has to say about your part time 4wd on the 4wd basic tab.
