    To day my wife and i went down to Hollister Hills again, She only got out one time today, some young kids urged me up a pretty good (for my 2nd time out)hill and my wife wanted nothing to do with it, I was a little nervous but my truck walked right up it.

    Last weekend I kept switching in and out of hi/low as I thought necessary, today I left it in low the whole time and felt this was much better.

    Never used the locker (not the most extreme trails) but I used A-TRAC a few times.

    I also used the DAC alot, feels unnatural to start down a hill and just take your foot of the brake pedal, the DAC takes over and just walks the truck down hill with confidence and some noise.:D

    I do remember to turn off the RSCA?, do not want the air bags going off for no reason.:eek:

    Her are a couple photo's, I only took a couple today, I was having to much fun to stop and get out.:D

    No comments :confused:

    Anyone else using the DAC or A-TRAC?
    Have any input on the benefit or lack of benefit in using these functions?

    Yea, in this particular park, staying in low range seemed easier than switching back and forth, like I tried last weekend. If I were covering more distance between difficult sections I would probably switch. It is tough turning that dial. :p

    That brings me to another point, why do the FJ's use a manual shifter on the transfer case :confused:
    Thanks for looking.;)
