    Hey guys! I"m new to tacoma world.

    I'm looking into buying a tocama and i've found one thats perfect. everything I want except... four wheel drive.
    I won't be extreme off roading or anything but i would wanna go sometimes. and it'd be nice to have the 4x4

    should I not buy because its 2WD ????

    If funding permits, get the 4x4. It's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

    I'm happy I purchased the 4x4. If you can then probably go 4x4 if you plan to offroad at all.

    You'll look at every 4x4 taco on the road and will second guess yourself and kick yourself... don't give in until you get what you want, or you'll spend more money later getting what you should've gotten in the first place!

    keep on checking the dealer lots for a used taco in good shape. or maybe a leftover 08 you can get at a good price.
