    Pre-runner has the 4x4 suspension and gear ratio's but is only 2 wheel drive. 4x4 is self explanitory. They are the exact same truck with the same stance and gearing, except the pre-runner is a 4x2. now you just need to decide if you need a 4x4 or not. BTW, welcome to TW!

    thanks for the welcome!!

    thanks for the info, i guess i really need to decide whether a prerunner would fulfill my needs, i dont i see myself using the 4x4 much, but for hunting trips and other ish i could see where it could come in handy :confused:, i dd read over a few threads and noticed that the gas mileage was not that big of a difference now just to make a choice

    The mpg difference between a 4x4 and 4x2 is really not that much, just a couple of mpg. The big decision is whether or not you want to spend the extra money for 4x4. I dont NEED a 4x4 but i definately wanted it. IMO its better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. i got it so i can have fun off-road if i want and not worry bout bad weather. I can get out in the snow for a beer run (lets face it, the best thing to do when you have a day off work from snow is to get drunk). If you have the money i would definately get it. If money is tight, then you will be ok without it
