    First day here and a question already.... Was driving about 60 mph and went over a bump - wheels left the ground briefly and all hell broke loose with the auto lsd system I think. It vibrated a lot and slowed me down - it regained composure and was fine after that - possible the feature was accidently engaged? :confused:

    Okay, thanks, any thing to keep an eye on, or should I just make sure it is not engaged? My last taco didn't even have ABS so the sensation was unnerving...:bananadead:

    Will do - but it could get dangerous at highway speeds...

    It was the VSC making sure you wouldn't spin out of control, ;)

    AUTO LSD rquires you push the VSC button once, for a stronger limited slip to help you move from a stop in 2WD. It is TRAC but without engine regulation.

    To turn off TRAC and VSC, stop the truck and press and hold down the VSC button... about 3-5 seconds, until the indicator light comes on.

    It goes back to normal anytime you restart the truck or re-press the button.
