Google off road trails In your area....some have like four different classes of trails...all I've seen require a fire extinguisher... Trail 1 might be easy requires 31" minimum tires ...and goes up...trails 3&4 probably require a winch and such or roll cages.

I say my 4x4 is to get me back on the pavement I raised hell in older trucks I've had not this one.

I have a 2005 GMC Envoy.  Has 4 wheel drive but don't use it in extreme off roading.  I've had to use it in some off road mud and such and did quite well.

I have a TRD/OR in crew cab. Its a good stock off road pickup. I usually keep it in 4wd high for most muddy off road use and let the regular "trac" system do the work. "A-trac" mode and the locking rear differential is for heavy stuff only. Like, when ur stuck. U can't go over 5mph I think with the rear locker engaged.

For ice/snow keep it in 4wd high and shift into low gears going downhill.

If its just a dirt road, don't bother putting it in 4wd Lol.

Go to tacomaworld.com and read all about it.

I had a scout 4 speed 345 ci....in four low it would crawl through 2' of snow easily.... I kept it in 4 high while playing... Way more fun.

I had a Land Rover Discovery years ago that would go. Those things are everything advertised as far as off road they just tear up to much. Something about the wheel base like a Jeep or maybe because it had a V8 turning those tires over... we would get drunk and ride the 4 wheeler trails at the hunting club .. most of the time rarely using the 4x4.

Get a Jeep.  Trucks are made for towing and hauling, not going off road.

Always found it ironic that the two companies making their money selling vehicles meant to go way out in the bush miles from civilization were the two most unreliable companies. Jeep and land rover
