    Agreed that a 4x4 regular cab can go a lot of places but you will still get into those 2wheel dance situations here and there with the kinda short wheelbase and limited flex . I'd recommend a rear locker for sure .

    I think I just seen the guy from Arizona with one of the first regular cabs on here . It's silver with a tube bumper front and back with black and chrome wheels and the punisher logo on the tailgate . The middle of his hood is also blacked out . Can't think of his name right now .

    for sure....

    I think a lot of it comes down to what are you really useing your truck for?
    I live three miles off the closest paved road in north idaho we get a lot of snow. I bought the yota because of the clearance. I dont weel per say but I use 4x4 allllll the time, just to get through the mountains to my house. lifts and mud tires are not my game, chains and deep snow is what I am used too

    so finding my self middle of nowhere high dessert in utah on that stupidly steep trail was a bit of a shock
    what can i say I got lost and the options were back down or find a spot to turn around and keep going up

    there were only a few times when i did the two wheel dance, aint pretty but was able to make it work. I am not saying that a locker would not have been nice, I am saying that I was impressed by what it was able to tackle, when I did not really have an option.

    I'd say 60 mph on 31's would be 3,000 rpm . With 4.88's. you'd go through the gears so fast .

    I'd say higher rpm then that, stock is 3.07. And a constant locked locker will eat up mpgs

    You know, I've been stalking this board for a very long time and there are some geniuses on here and then there are people that shouldn't have a license on here.... Let alone a breeding certificate

    My B, youre 6lug. And why not just swap for the elocker? Can pick up an axle for the price of an arb.

    ^Hey thanks :eek:

    I have no idea what to do with this thing. After you mentioned Tundras.. I've looked and built them online multiple times a week. Fawk, 17mpg and adequate power > 18mpg and nada. Sucks to think of forefitting mods for a new truck, sucks more to think about continuing to spend money on something I'll ultimately part with. Thought I'd keep her forever, seriously- even if I had a kid, still keep the taco.. Idunno, I may hold off until Toyota offers a better dual vvt 4cyl tacoma and get an access or double cab.

    I agree with you too. hell i dropped decent coin on my suspension. i was just saying overall capability. My point is the truck will get you where you need to go.

    Aftermarket suspension won't toss you around as much, hammer the chassis, maybe won't scrape the undercarriage as badly. Maybe you over heat the shocks and you need to go slower.
