Exactly! Which gets back to my original question: how did Toyota come up with 21 degrees if I come up with 26+ degrees? Not that it really matters that much ... I'm just curious.
Also if anyone is interested, the smallest sphere your truck (stock DC SB) can drive on has a radius of about 13'5"
Yes, I am interested, actually.
I was comparing my stock truck's dimensions to my buddy's LR Discovery because he was bragging to me that his Disco is "way more capable offroad" than my truck
-- but it is interesting that my breakover is 2 degrees better than the Disco's but the Disco's minimum sphere radius is like 12 feet. Which illustrates that breakover angle isn't necessarily more important than wheelbase afterall.
Either way, 26 degrees for the Taco vs. 24 degrees for the Disco, and 13.5' radius for the Taco vs. 12' radius for the Disco comes down to negligible in the field.
