    Looks like they will have to buy old. The electronic features are listed in the on the website and in the dealer pamphlets. If you can't read then that isn't the vehicle's or the auto maker's fault.

    They have taken a lot of the fun out of driving. And a lot of people's skill is poor due to it.

    BUT, federal law dictates asc and tc now.

    When 2" of snow bogs the roads down, it's because people don't have vsc. For almost 200 years of motorization we have been inventing new technology and options for our vehicles. I remember when you had to work your own windshield wipers intermitently, thats when we new how to drive. ahh,,,, the good old days

    can you turn off enough to do sideways driving in these things? Reliably that is. I don't need asm telling me to go straight when I'm lining up a sweet drift.

    My 2010 with the traction devices is MORE fun to drive than the other Tacomas... I can go anywhere with confidence that I won't ever get stuck... and I base that on what I have taken the new truck through already... The truck just goes and goes, and that is because of A-TRAC (which is an enhanced version of TRAC) that gives the truck abilities that would normally require front and rear lockers.

    I just think they should offer packages with some of the supposedly helpful electronic aids not on the vehicle or possibly all the electronics they can while staying within legal borders.

    There hasn't been any change to the operation posted here, and we are almost at the end of the 2011 model year.

    X2... but REAR LOCKER FIRST

    Since you didn't buy an A-TRAC equipped truck, then adding a front (and rear, if not already on it) locker will be as close to having A-TRAC as possible (and some here would say better)! :rolleyes:

    For maximum traction it is better.

    Yet you are the only one that thinks A-TRAC is better. Are you ever going to let it rest? If it was indeed better, Toyota would be putting it on the 70 series landcruiser, a true off-roader. Yet the 70 series still comes with F/R lockers as an option. Care to explain that?
