    So I just realised that not all of us love trucks the same. and now am interested to know how more people feel about this concern of mine :confused: could just be a pet peeve but still would like to know others opinions -
    sorry i know there's probably threads already about this on here but not in the really in the mood to look it up - Hardwork pays off down the road, lazyness pays off now:D

    I have a 2wd sport. I love it. Have not off roaded it all that much yet cause im still moding it. What I have done off road I have not needed 4WD. Even in ice and snow. Did just fine without it. That said I do kind of wish I had 4WD for that future time I do need it. Im not going to vote "2WD all the way" cause thats just dumb, But just cause I don't have 4WD doesn't mean I don't have a truck. There have been lots of threads like this. It's a endless argument. It just depends on how you use your truck. A 2WD would make a crappy rock crawler, for sure. And a 2WD trophy Truck would kick the crap out of any 4WD consumer vehicle. Stock or not. Bottom line, Yes 4WD is better, but there are to many people that use there 4WD to make up for their crappy driving skills.

    Nothing yet, brand new!
    Doesn't matter to me.. Whatever works for the task at hand.
    I'm happy with a PreRunner. I've owned several 4 by's.
    I didn't need one so I saved some money this time around.
    In the end I'm a pickup man all the way through. So I like them all. :D
