    Got it. Thanks! I fully intend to get out there when it starts cooling down. I'm just trying to get an idea of what to expect is all.

    Wait. So I can get bitches internet-wheeling? Tell me more...

    I'd say you can easily do that. It's just a dirt road.

    :notsure:

    I have done way worse on shit tires. Lock it up! Since you are on dirt road having rear locked wont hurt anything only help.

    Keep momentum and when in doubt gas it out...lol

    I feel like I've done steeper than that in 2hi without lockers in straight drive mode on stock tires. I think you'll be fine.

    You do realize there is more than one type of off road right? Some people like high speed, and in that case 4wd is as pointless as the Canadian :p

    Hes probably a canadian! Haha

    And I saw nothing in that video that would suggest 4 wheel drive, almost nothing that would suggest a rear locker even. In my opinion, the biggest asset u can have on the trail is knowing how to drive your truck and that is ONLY learned through experience from driving your truck! So my advice is go for it! U have a rear locker so its there for backup just in case but just get u some drivin time in and sooner then u know it u wont have to start threads like this and waste everyones valuable time on TW :thumbsup:

    I fly aroungd on fire roads in 4hi for much better traction... much better... very much better... so much better that I think pre runners make no sense... actually Canadian's make more sense (except OZ)

    Toyota doesn't even sell Prerunners here , however I don't think a Prerunner would have any issue with that hill , the guy in the video had no clue how to use his 4WD system at all , lol
