    I was wondering -

    PreRunners in the Northeast aren't all that common. However, 4x2s are. Assuming it's possible, how much work/$$ would folks guess to lift one of the base 4x2s?

    Thanks for the quick feedback. Honestly, I hadn't noticed if the hubs were 4 or 5. I'd think a 2005 or newer Tacoma.

    Thanks guys...looks like a doable, but unlikely scenario. I appreciate the quick input! Kevin

    As a current Texan who is originally from new england, I have to ask, why would you even consider buying a prerunner or 4x2 in Connecticut?

    Hi guys - pretty simple really. I'm after better MPGs. I had a Ranger for 12 years and did fine with 4x2. Never got stuck and preferred to drive it on snowy days over my Accord. My Ranger sat higher than the Tacoma 4x2s, one of the reasons I bought it over the Tacoma back in 2000.

    So the PreRunner has the look I want (sits up high like a 4x4) but I don't lug around the extra weight. Depending on configuration and year, the MPGs go from about even to about 12% higher.

    Sorry for the delayed response...I've been shopping for my Tacoma online.

    Kevin
