    Absolutly loved the truck. Magnetic Grey TRD off road. I have been a first Gen guy as I have owned 2 of those but may need to move up. I was amazed at how many advances they have now.

    Do have one question. There looked to be about 3 different traction assists. Can someone elaborate on these and the specific functions of each.

    See build thread.
    THey are all explained in the owners manual. If you do a quick search you will find some threads that explain them a lot easier to understand.

    I'd like to test drive a new one just so I can see if they did something about the dumbass reactions of the electronic throttle control. They don't mesh well with a manual transmission on my 2007.

    Here is chart I threw together that helps to explain the various settings.

    However, this is really just more of a visual representation of what David K has explained in his thread.

    Thanks for the link. That explained a lot. Also I agree, not sure if I could own an auto again.
