    Has anybody had any good/bad experiences with the 4X2? I wouldn't mind a 4X4, but I'm not sure I want the chance of having more parts moving. I'll only go muddin a couple times a month, but just to be safe...

    Depends on the mud...how deep it is..how thick it is...and how heavy your right foot is.

    Actually....It's actually BETTER to have a 4x4 in any given offroad experience (including mudding). The torque, pressure, & weight is being divided (and spread out) over 4 wheels instead of 2.

    Having only 2 drive wheels - you have a higher chance of breaking something than you would with 4 drive wheels.

    Are you shopping for a truck? Or do you already have a 4x2?

    Well, my step father is going to co sign on a truck, and have me make the payments. He is just concerned, as it will be my first vehicle, that having a 4 wheel drive means more moving parts resulting in more that can go wrong.

    Thats what warranty is for bro, well thats if you're getting something with warranty that is. In my opinion if your going to be doing any type of offroading, mudding, etc... i would go with 4x4 or get a good winch...lol

    For what you're planning, you want 4X4. Tell your stepdad that Toyota has a 5 year/60K warranty on the powertrain so you'll be fine.
