    I have a 2006 LB DC Prerunner. Currently it is all paid off. I am debating if I want to fork out more money to get a new DC 4x4. Advice?

    If you don't need the 4x4 keep it and let it earn some of that money that you spent on it back for you.

    I would wait for the next Gen to come out, unless you really really want 4x4 now. Or take the money you'd spend on it and pickup an old Truck.

    I would probably have to fork over 10K or so for a new truck. Not sure it is worth it atm.

    I like the fact I have it when I need it, instead of needing it and not having it. But at the same time if the prerunner is cutting it for ya right now, I'd wait until the next gen came out. I second the getting an older 4wd if you really want one now though.

    I'd like not having an extra payment. I would keep it if its been reliable and you don't really need 4x4.

    I would vote NO as well unless you have an actual need for 4x4.

    So a beater is PERFECT- you don't need it as a daily driver, and you can learn some stuff!!
