    I have an 06 Tacoma PreRunner with a towing package, and I'm going to be hauling a trailer across the state next weekend. I know it's better to turn the overdrive off when towing, and I can't find the switch/button to do so. Any idea where I might find that?

    D is OD. Use 4th for around town driving. Once you are on the highway you can pop it into D. If the trans starts hunting for gears then use 4th again.

    I don't recommend using D while towing ever. Overdrive is the weakest gear and not ment to be used while towing.
