I don't know which is more awesome, the Hilux, or the 6 x 6. I think I'd pick the 6 x 6 just because it has 6 wheels. I also want to take my Forester through snow banks like that just for kicks, except I think it'd break off all the stupid little plastic clips holding the bumper to the car.

It's been a while since I've ridden in an FJ. I remember a selectable rear lock. Does the tcase have an "auto" mode? I wasn't a fan of it at first in my pickup, but it's awesome when you're going from cleared to uncleared roads a bunch, don't have to worry about binding in turns or anything.

Not sure what the split in auto in the np246 in mine is, I'd guess 50/50 at full power

The manual is fulltime 4x4 with an open center diff, so no worries about binding anything. I have never used the center diff lock in the snow, but have used it in sand offroad.

I love RWD cuz I can get some serious angle when drifting the thing.

The Torsen Diff in Toyota trucks is legit, RWD, AWD, 4WD Hi/Lo options with ATRAC will power through pretty much anything.
Here's my 4runner Sport from last weekend. Only mods are the Thule rack, 32" tires, and TSX projector retrofit
