I have a slightly lifted 2wd that I've sunk a little money into. You can look through my cardomain page by clicking on my username and following the link "visit homepage" or something like that. There are some pictures that you can see a 2wd can take you off road, but you can also get stuck alot.
In my opinion, if you want to do a lot of 'wheelin, sell your truck and get a 4x4. You'll be much happier in the end if beaches, mud, and rocks are your thing.
Welcome to the site. You can learn a lot about Rangers here if you stick around for a while. And I see you're from Houston... only 90 miles or so from me.
