    90% of the time, the standard mode (no button pressing) works in H2 and H4. In L4, always have A-TRAC on (or MTS on the 3rd gens).
    The quick press in H2 or H4 is if you get tires spinning too much (they shouldn't spin at all).
    That's really all.
    The rear locker is more for playin with the variety of functions and maybe towing someone out of a stuck, maybe snow driving... but A-TRAC gives you true 4 wheels of drive power... the locker only the back two with one spinner in front, or add A-TRAC to have both front tires working for you.

    My 07 Tacoma is soo jealous of this thread.

    But my wifes 2021 4runner pro is Hella fun to drive Trac off in manual mode. Something about switching from auto to manual makes it slip and slide in the snow :)
