    For those of u who commented on my recent thread.

    Sorry for the poor selection of words in the title, I didn't mean it to be a "disgrace" in the choice of 4x4 or 4x2. It was noted that he should have learned lesson and he did, anyone who has gotten stuck has left the situation with a little more knowledge about how they could have done something different. In this case the reason why I choose the word disgrace what that he had to repsort to getting pulled out by a jeep. We as truck owners never want to ask for help unless it is truly needed we would rather do/fix by our self. In this case a little digging and sweat he could have easily gotten out.

    So once again sorry for the poor choice of words, on the other hand although the kid got stuck and said u need 4x4 to get up that hill I was eager to show him u didn't so I drove up the hill in my sport with lsd... all on the way u dive and experience I guess. Lessons learned by both parties.

    It takes a big man to come back .... no offense taken.

    Many times there seems to big a bid disagreement between the two (2WD vs. 4WD). It is all up to the needs of the driver.

    Why pay for something that you know you will never use? The buyer needs to play the common sense card at the time of purchase instead of thinking what his buddies are going to think.

    A friend of mine has a 4WD Tundra and he loves to ride in my passenger side.

    Hey I just wanted to clear up the disagreement that insured from the thread. I agree that its on the needs of the driver I wanted 4x4 when I bought the truck but I have yet to need 4x4 so it would have been a waste of $. Although it would have been nice :)

    Who cares what you get pulled out by? He got free and was on his way. If I'm stuck, I don't care if it's a Segway that pulls me out. I rather get yanked out than spend countless hours of digging if I don't have to.
