    The original post suggests that TRAC is enabled in 4lo on a SR/SR5/TRD Sport/Limited, but I do not think that is the case. I never heard the ABS brakes operate in 4lo (without the brake pedal being applied) on my 2016 SR5. I did however notice it when in 4hi. I have a 2020 OR now, so I cannot confirm it.

    I am referring to this section:

    SR/SR5/TRD Sport/Limited
    7. 4Lo TRAC ON and VSC OFF.
    8. 4Lo TRAC OFF and VSC OFF

    Extensive team testing did indicate SR/SR5/Sport/Limited does have TRAC in 4lo (by default), as shown by the posts in this thread.
    I can't verify that from personal experience (OR model here).

    Start reading thru this older thread for some verification

    That video is fairly convincing. I know I tended to disable TRAC/VSC with the long push every time I wanted to have fun, but I don't remember having to do it in 4lo. I remember 4lo defaulting everything to off. Maybe I wasn't observant enough, my memory fails me, or I had an oddball 2016 SR5. I wish I had an SR5 to go test with again.
