Welcome! I think we may have some things to talk about here (Baja four wheeling)!

See the Off Roading forum here on TW for our upcoming trip to Mision Santa Maria (a week before the 500).

We helped with pit communications at the '06 500 above Valle Trinidad: http://vivabaja.com/606

As it is right now I sold my old 4X4 tundra, and driving my Accord, ridding my bike and dirt bike, really pushing to get the truck ready.
David K thanks for the chart I will carry it in the TACO.

The 'chart' I am guessing is the '9 drive modes' in my signature below my posts?

When I traded my 2005 for the 2010, I discovered the new (since '09) traction devices on the Off Road 4WDs were so poorly described and explained by both the salesman and the Tacoma owner's manual that I HAD TO get it figured out and simplified!

The gang here at TW were a big help... Now, I want to help others who have not yet used their A-TRAC and TRAC or don't yet have it and are unaware of the increased abilties and driveabilty of the new Tacoma over the others.

I saw the A-TRAC tested out at Ocotillo Wells back in 2001 or 2 on a Lexus SUV... only I didn't know what it was... But they strapped the SUV to a truck for an anchor and drove the Lexus to the frame on the sand mesa at Devil's Slide. They unhooked the strap... and I watched as the Lexus shook a bit and then just drove right out of the stuck. That was so cool... and now the Tacoma finally has it! I did my own test on the beach at Bahia Santa Maria after getting this truck, and A-TRAC drove me right out of a struck.

If you ever get a new Tacoma truck, I recommend the OFF ROAD TRD 4X4 so you get the A-TRAC and enhanced TRAC for High Range 4WD... Deflating tires for Baja sand is perhaps a thing of the past!
