    This was an AWESOME topic at tundrasolutions.com when i had my tundra. Helped a lot of members find out things about there trucks they didn't know it did until months later!

    So, what are things your 2nd gen does that you did know until later down?

    My answer: telescoping steering wheel

    I pretty much knew everything about these trucks as I was reading about, lusting over, learning, and generally losing my mind to buy one for over 3 years.

    trac control just lets you pretty much spin the tires with equal power to both wheels, vsc "stops" you from going into an out of control 180 degree spin by sending power to the wheel with the most traction


    pretty much
