    I must say I am impressed with the four wheel drive capabilities of the Tacoma. I have only ever had full sized trucks before the Tacoma (Nissan Titan most recent...talk about torque!!!) The torque of the V8 is nice but the Tacoma has plenty of power for what it weighs. Today I took it for the first somewhat aggressive off road trip since I have owned it. I bought it in March. I have been to the river a few times and in some mud but never really been “off road” with it. Sorry about the pics, they are from my phone and I was by myself so no action photos. And they don’t really do justice. It was pretty deep sand. And the hill I am sitting on in the one picture was actually pretty steep with about 1ft of water at the bottom of it. Went up that with the e-brake on...ooops (Radio on too loud, didn't hear the "beep").

    Sounds like you had fun! I think the 4x4 system blow the fish out of the water(other companies being the fish)

    Taco's 4x4 abilities are one of it's claims to fame...these are proven offroad vehicles even stock, and get really nasty with some aftermarket money.

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    Haha. Making me want 4x4 is funny. NOT.

    Looks like fun!

    Thanks guys for sharing in my "fun". I have really wanted to do some mod's to my Tacoma (small lift, wheels and tires, exhaust) to make it even better off road as I have with all my past pickups. Plus I like to have vehicles that are different than others in town. There is at least one other silver TRD Sport access cab and silver regular cab base model in town. That is still to close to looking like mine. Although, I think the Tacoma is as capable as I would ever need it to be so I would need to base the spending money entirely on looks. With me getting temporarily laid off from my job and only making $15 an hour right now I can't justify it. :( Oh well, guess the economy will turn around sometime. Then it will be justified. :D
