    Hi All,
    I just got my new 2009 Tacoma Double Cab, TRD Sport 4x4 last night! I love it and am glad I made the choice to go with this awesome truck for my next vehicle.

    As I am new to the Taco line, I have what is probably a common question (although I couldn't all the info I was looking for) wrt VSC/LSD settings for various driving conditions.

    The way I understand it is that I would want to use the LSD on and VSC off in instances where I'd be in mud or sand. I'd want the LSD off and the VSC on when driving in snow or wet conditions. And I'd want both the LSD and VSC off during normal dry conditions on street roads and highways.

    Can you fine folks confirm if I've got this right? Thanks in advance and I look forward to learning more about my Taco in the very near future.

    Cheers,
    Mickey
