    So I was wondering what is the ratio of Tacoma 4x2 to 4x4 owners on this site. There seems to be more 4x4 owners on here.

    4x2 is meant as 2 wheel drive (no matter the style).
    4x4 is meant as 4 wheel drive (no matter the style).

    I have a 4x2. There aren't any good places around here for the want or need of 4x4.

    4x4. Will be handy in the winters up here. If I lived where crappy weather didn't occur for half of the year, I'd probably have a 4x2.

    I think Prerunner should be an option. There is a BIG difference between Prerunner and 4x2 models.

    4x2 was meant as 2 wheel drive. It doesn't matter if it is a prerunner or not.

    I would love to have a 4x4, but it doesn't do any good with all paved roads. I wish we had something like MOAB.

    4x4. I love to drive in the snow and have the security to get out of almost anywhere. Last year I had to dig out four co-workers with their front wheel drive cars. I carry a steel shovel in my truck for times like these.
