    Mud Terrains, you can do more. But for the most part, 2WD is 2WD and you cant do a whole lot. But Mud terrains will help. Hell its a toyota

    It can, but its a pre-runner. They arent bought to be Mudded.
    Hell make it look good and drive it like a baby.

    I love my 4wd but i mainly use it for snowy conditions.

    I have a Prerunner with off-road package and from personal experience, speed and smart steering are your friends.

    I've gone up hills and trails that I never thought a 2WD truck would make it through. Goto Nor Cal forums and click on the Hollister Hills Pics and Photos thread and ask other Tacoma owners who went off-roading with me about what they think about Prerunners... They will tell you how amazed they are on how I was able to keep up with them 4x4s on a lot of the rough trails.

    My advice:

    -Speed is your friend in most situations
    -Proper steering to the right spots on the trail
    -Air down your tires to half the PSI of what you normally have
    -Have good tires
    -If you have a locker, engage the locker before you drive through a trail where you think you might get stuck

    I once climbed a big clay and (small) rock pile. Got close to the top on a plateau and got out to look around and my feet sunk into the clay about two inches. I thought I was going to be calling the tow truck but I was able to get a just enough momentum to get off the plateau.

    Many, see build thread.
    Strictly speaking they they do exactly the same thing. They provide 100% lockup between the rear axles.

    The difference between the two is the actuator. It is either electronically activated (factory TRD), or activated via +12v air solenoid which sends air pressure via hose line to the rear axle (like ARB).

    I understand that the ARB type can lockup at any speed provided that the axle shafts are in alignment and the wheels are turning at the same rate of speed. With the factory TRD locker, the truck must be in 4Lo and the transmission in neutral.
