    I recently bought a slightly used '10 4X4 DC Off Road. I owned an X-Runner before, and test drove a couple sport 4X4's.

    The brakes in my Off Road are considerably more touchy. Does anyone know what is different between the brakes in the offroad vs. the sport? Has anyone else driven both packages and noticed the same difference?

    I was doing some playing around off road last night, and I'm not sure I like the touchy brakes. Didn't have the control I would have liked when trying to ease down a hill. I'd love to hear everyone's input on this.

    Ok, Thanks. Why and what's the difference?

    Interesting. I suppose it's an electric pump too? So it would work even if the engine died? Still not sure I like it though :D
