    Lots.
    From a guy with a 4X4... Do you ever wish you had the more "rugged" edition? Then what do you like about having your "street" edition?

    Don't get me wrong. I think X-Runners are awesome! Just a question. With mine I am trying to find a happy medium between the street and the trails.

    Well I prefer the X because I bought it to be a street truck hence the s/c and extreme DJM drop. I wanted a quick street truck that looked good so thats what I bought...

    two different trucks with two purposes

    Rather have a 6 speed street truck not made fast go faster, than a truck made for mud. I hate spending money at the car wash!

    After I had my X-Runner for a little over year I def missed having my old 4x4. So I ended up trading it in on a 4X4, I also needed more room so I got a DC.

    I simply like the amount of attention the X gets. No other truck like it on the road. Also, nice to be able to dive into corners and rocket down the straights

    I like being able to hit the corners fast. Plus I hated spending hours spraying the undercarriage off when I went mudding. Both are fun though.

    I almost bought an X runner instead of my 09 4x4. But the salesguy actually made some sense when he made a statement about why do I want an X runner.

    He said you already are driving an NSX for speed and looks so why buy something that will compete with that. Made sense to me so I bought the 4x4.

    Not to mention my 96 taco 4x2 that I still drive may not be an xrunner but I can still run over shopping carts with it and get a laugh.

    I got my X for the looks and performance it has.

    I had a 96 tacoma 4x4 for 5 or 6 years and loved it. Did alot of mudding, playing in the snow, pulling people out of the mud and snow, and occasionally getting airborne. :D

    I do miss being able to play in the mud and drive over crap on the highway without worrying about hitting it, but I love haulin' ass and hangin' corners like a motherfocker.

    It was love at first sight for me, I saw a bsp at my local dealership, used, trd s/c/exhaust drove it, and when I was finally ready to buy, I ended up with the RR. My next rig will be a little taller, less scaretactics while cruising the streets, being afraid of everything in the road. :D Im gunning for either a 4x4 tacoma, or tunny! next time!

    **sigh** Way to get under my skin!

    I bought my 08 XR in Feb 08. I wanted a car that could haul my dirtbikes. And i found it, get nothing but compliments on it. However, now, living in Canada, it would be nice to have something that was a little more winter complient, and i do not live in a big city, (or a city at all anymore :( ) so street quality becomes an issue. Also would be nice to have a quad cab, because NOONE likes sitting in the back of my truck! ahhaha

    So now im trying to justify taking a huge loss trading my truck in, or to just suck it up and live with what i got (which i do love)
