    Do you guys drive in 4 or D around town?

    Just wondering. I couldn't find any info on it in the owners manual. Keeping in 4th is basically like clicking an O/D off button, right?

    Keeping it in 4th does prevent the trans from going into overdrive, but around town it probably doesn't make a difference. How often does the truck go into overdrive on city streets? I own a manual trans so I don't have any experience with the Tacoma A/t.
