    Wish we had the option of just turning it all off so we can get sideways easier when we want :bananadance:

    Congrats 3G'rs, pretty nice of Toyota to prevent open diffs in 4LO on the non-TRDOR trims. Long overdue.

    yeah, i"m going to go back and edit my post to warn everyone to ignore the filmer as he doesn't know the terminology.

    It's all good, but it was a struggle getting everyone on the same page about the functions when mapping it out. The auto industry could use some standard terminology for safety related features though.

    No kidding. One thing to mess up your truck on a rock being an ass. But mess it up on purpose on a cheap ass jackstand? Shoot that's TW level material. :taco:

    That is so true.

    It would have taken next to nothing to do it better, just a couple wood shims or a bit of rubber padding. Hell, with all the frame rust stuff, I put rubber pads on my jack cup and stands.

    If I really got my safety monkey hat out, I might say to recycle those abused stands also.

    All 2WD models and All 4WD models share the SAME traction systems [TRAC, AUTO LSD, & TRAC OFF] EXCEPT the TRD OFF-ROADs... Only they have the locking rear differential.

    The 4WD Off Roads also have A-TRAC (manuals) or MTS & CRAWL (automatics).
    A-TRAC and MTS (Multi-Terrain-Select) are enhanced, super limited-slip, traction control very close to a locker but on both the front and rear tires without the negative steering issues of locked differentials off-roading. Only use the locker if all else fails... as Toyota says, use only for emergency.

    Great summary, clears up the confusion for me...

    Will definitely be referencing this a time or two until I get used to which setting does what. That is, once I get out and "get a little mud on the tires..."

    True that... I didn't know the truck had these gizmos when I got it back in 2009... Had to discover it. I then asked here about what these did... got a good set of answers but it wasn't enough so I began testing and writing about them.
