    I have a Prerunner and am really kicking my self in the ass for not getting a 4x4. On the other hand I really don't know how much I would really go off roading. I just really like the higher stance and more aggressive tires and just the overall look of a lifted tacoma. What does everyone else think? Gay to lift a prerunner or go for it?

    Get a locker and a wench and there's nowhere a pre-runner can't go. And no, Taco's are sweet lifted no matter the number of drive shafts.

    +1..

    It can only help rather than hurt any type of off-road ability.. Plus if you get bigger tires, your clearance goes up a bit too.

    Depending how big you go, could hurt your "garage-entering" ability though..
