So how do you know you have TRAC? Do you have the slippery car light?

It's a TRD Sport. I know it has traction control because it has it in the owner's manual and, when I go to spin out, the brakes grab and the whole truck shakes.

Do you have lights in the dash showing operation?

I believe Crom's threads are ABS disable , with VSC being disabled as a side effect .

Is there no VSC button in pre - 09 Tacoma's ?

Come on you guys... Really???

HE HAS A 2008 SPORT TRD... They have a mechanical (inside the diff) limited slip differential... The kind some of you think is better... but Toyota discontinued with the new TRAC electronic/brake limited slip that CAN be turned off!

SORRY OP... You DON'T have an off button for mechanical limited slips (only in 2005-2008 Sport Tacos).

I thought the VSC / TRAC system was optional pre -09

I believe there was a point where there was no VSC button but I'm not sure. I asked him if he had status lights in the dash but he insists he has TRAC. He said the brakes kick in.

Ok guys, no need to argue haha. I have an '08 TRD Sport. No button. No dash light, but brakes are applied when I try to spin out. I'm new to this as I just bought the truck. So is crom's mod the only way to go?
