    I have a 2012 TRD Sport 2wd, and it says that I have a Low setting as one of my gears. Why is this? It seems unusual to have this on a 2wd.

    If your climbing a really dang steep hill? I wasn't sure if 2 and L are the same. I assume L changes ratio or something to make more torque.

    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    *pulling a stump
    *pulling anything heavy for a short distance (wet boat ramp)
    *because it's cheaper for the manufacturer to have one tranny configuration (aside from the manual trans)
