    ATRAC is a system on FJ Cruisers and 09 TRD ORs that uses 2 wheel sensors on each wheel to detect differential in wheel speed on the same axle and apply individual wheel braking to keep tires from loosing traction. Awesome on rocks, pretty good in the mud especially if it's hard bottom. If you give it to much gas you'll power through and defeat the system so it works best at about 2000RPMs.

    To get through that mud hole I had the rear locked and ATRAC in the front. Back wheels kept pushing and front wheels kept getting traction and it pulled through.

    Dude you have no idea what you're talking about.

    Yea... bogging is all big knobby tires, lockers, and wheel speed. ATRAC is crawling.
