I'm considering a purchase of the Nismo 4x2 KC to use off-road for work (large construction jobs, some dual track trails, but no serious "technical" 4-wheeling). How does the 4x2 Nismo handle the off-road with the locking differential activated? Am I better off just purchasing the 4x4? My current truck is a 1998 Ranger XLT 4.0L 4x4 with 175,000 miles and has served me well up until about 3,000 miles ago. Thanks for any feedback.

4x2

the 4x2 will do fine thats what I have. I live in louisville ky sometimes when I go to work I'll end up sinking 3 of the 4 tires about a 1/4 of the way in the clay and I never get stuck.

It doesn't do that well in sand but you wont get stuck too easily.

so far my 02' 2x4 has kept up with any 4x4 everytime i go out. and we take some hard trails. you should see the look on their faces when they get to the top of the mountain then see my truck making it all the way. though i still need a locker. and my truck sucks in the sand. the only time i got stuck way in a dry river bed. i hit a deep patch of sand and sunk the truck all the way to the rocker panels. sorry no pics :oops:
