Does anyone have a Prerunner and wish they had a 4x4. I have a Prerunner that I love, but really wish I had a 4x4 now. Can anyone give me some kind works about Prerunners? Thanks guys, have a merry CHRISTmas.

I am glad that I got a 4x4. It really helps out in heavy ass rain or going up fatty hills.

Yesterday I was trying to get up a steep ass hill. The steepest hill I have ever seen, it was covered in leaves and it was wet. I tried going up in 2wd and kept slipping. I tossed the truck in 4wd and it was marvelous.

I had to go up this hill to pick up a new puppy. A golden lab. :lol:

Yep!!!!!

It's not so much that I wish I had a 4X4. But I really wish I had your rig. I was a dumb cheap ass and got the prerunner with the 2.7l. So don't feel so bad.
I don't mind two wheel drive. And with a little driving finesse you can go a lot of places. I am not saying it will beat a 4X4. But I will say that in some areas you can do better then a 4X4 if you know how to balance the throttle, wheel and brake. With the right set of tires.

I have had Chevy, Ford, Nissan and Toy 4by's all my life. But had three favorites. A 1979 and a 1980 Toyota 4X (this was in Alaska). In the 1980 pickup I put a buick 231 V-6. That set a wheels could go anywhere.
My 05 prerunner is a joy to drive. I am not regretting my purchase. I just wish I had more power.
I guess you have to figure out your needs. A 4X would have been nice but not if you don't use it.

Anyhoo,
Have some Happy Holidays!!!!!
It's Jager time.

4WDs are great, but so are PreRunners. There is a lot you can do with 4WD that you can't with 2WD, but after you've owned one for a while, you realize that there is a lot you shouldn't be doing with your 4WD, that you do, just to see if you can do it.

Alpine JL, does your dog like riding in your truck? Dogs like trucks, you know. :)
