Never owned a pickup or SUV. Do the 4x4's also have trouble handling without a load in the back, or is that mainly just a prob on the rwd versions?

You can pick up a brand new Toyota Tacoma 4X4 for $21000 and it will last forever. Although the TRD suspension is a little soft it rides smooth and almost like a car.

5500lb towing capacity with V6 will still tow the porky M3 or a light boat.

Trucks are the ultimate beaters.

Never a problem and great in the snow even though it's 2 wheel drive.
41,000 miles and NEVER, ever been to the dealer for anything.

Depends on your budget, but a good cheap SUV beater can be made out of a fairly used older model 6 cylinder Jeep Cherokee. Not fancy, but good awd and an engine which is very solid.

i know with transfer-case type systems there's a problem with binding in 4wd...

so when do you actually use the 4x4 mode? just in slippery snow and mud?<br>
