    Alot of ppl on here have 2wd trucks. And they go offroading alot.
    U can do decent offroading with a 2wd aslong as u have good tires, experience, and knowing ur limits

    I had a 2wd jeep comanche with open rear for along time haha that thing taught me how to drive. And yes i got stuck alot

    Well I'm not to sure you could do any off roading in a car. If you had a truck you could still have some fun on the trails. Just go with someone with a bigger truck.

    My Taco is a 2WD, but I'm a Virginian, so I can't tell you jack about Socal. :p
    Most 2WD trucks I've messed with did fine offroad- you should be fine.

    ive gotten lost in truckhaven following 4x4 guys.

    and i made it out fine and i have street tires.

    you can be fine with 2wd but you gotta know your truck and your limitations.

    when in places where youd want the 4x4 to climb youll have to carry momentum(pin it to win it)

    but dont over do it to where youll destroy your truck.

    ask nfs he was there(and is 2wd) and coached me.

    we couldnt follow up this one hill. but i went around and got lost. but i did end up finding the 4x4 guys who were relieved to see me hahaha

    your best sticking to main trails, and trail riding. and a hi-lift and winch would help. just be careful and smart or you might be calling for help when your miles into the woods.
