    Hi folks,
    I have the 4cyl 4x4. I don't plan on doing a lot of hard core 4x4ing or anything like that. But am curious, how far can i really go? i appreciate your guys's thoughts on this.

    *this is my first 4wheel drive.:)

    Welcome Ryan.

    First of all their is a LOT of aftermarket support for Tacomas. Kind of depends how deep your wallet is.

    We have the same truck stock so far but I am planning suspension lift and possibly a rear locker.

    I will be doing something similar to this on my PreRunner. I will be installing a Limited Slip Rear Differential (LSD). Most of people that have 4WD or PreRunners that I have talked to tell me that you should be able to get through most stuff with just a rear locker. Since I don't do any "real" offroading, the LSD should work out best for me. A locker, on the other hand, will give you even power to both wheels once it is engaged, no "if", "and"s, or "but"s about it... Either one will help your off-road experience.

    Of course, a lift is usually the way most people go first. It automatically looks cooler. :rolleyes: LSD/Locker is only cool if you tell someone you have it, or it does something amazing before their eyes.

    If someone asks you to sell them some - "Just say NO" - Nancy Reagan ;)

    "dont go past the tip". LOL! too much.

    Good stuff guys. i mean, its like you never really know til you get out there and go. So keep the comments coming in. 007tacoma, i really here what your saying on that.

    Today is my second day working at my new Toyota dealership. I am hoping to start taking to the techs and find out some neat tricks. I transferred to this dealership through my company that has several dealerships w/ several brands. I used to sell dodges. now i sell Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep/Toyota. obvously toyota is my favorite. I have only been w/ the company 2 months . so still real new overall.

    So anyway, I am still trying to find out how far to push my pickup w/ in reason. I also have moved to a town that has many lakes w/ good fishing. my dad has a boat that is about 2500 lbs including the trailer. Can i tow that w/ in reason?

    So How far can i go . and how much and i tow. (don't mind the ryming)lol

    You can tow up to 3500 pounds. I believe 350 of that can be tongue weight.

    I have a 15.5' bass boat that hauls spectacular. If I'm going through hills I don't dare shift it out of 3rd gear, but other than that she does real good :D

    There is not transmission cooler or temp light on our model that I know of so how long and how hard I'm not able to answer.
