In this case, everything you mention in relation to ATRAC above is true, but NOT for my particular 4Runner.nonot wrote:Assuming you have a 4th gen 4runner, the vehicle never brakes. The vehicle will, upon invoking ATRAC or mire-control, cut power to the engine so you cannot accelerate above 2000 rpm. The only way to engage the brakes is to engage the downhill assist control. You may want to read your manual.
ATRAC is traction control, there is no stability control. The vehicle will only engage ATRAC if it senses the wheels skidding and not engaging. This can happen when skidding on gravel, a tire off the ground, etc.
To disable ATRAC you have to rewire the 4runner custom from the fusebox, engaging 4WD doesn't disengage it. Perhaps engaging the center diff does? I don't quite remember, although if the light on your dash is on it will show it disengaged.
Same here when attempting to get into 4-Low... must be in Park, and even then there are times I have to put it in neutral, let it roll a bit, put it back into Park and try again. There are a few times I've had to repeat it 2-3 times before it finally engages, and without a gear-grinding growl.RedRoxx44 wrote:Pain--- engaging 4 low as the Rubicon t-case has no synchro. I tried what the manual said but the only way I could get it to do so was to put the auto trans in park.
I didn't like tha hassle so I just stopped airing down.RedRoxx44 wrote:The tire pressure indicator. I got an AV Pro Cal and reprogrammed that. If you air down or your tires are cold it would trigger the alarm.
I'm in full agreement... disconnect the battery for any reason then one must 'normalize' theRedRoxx44 wrote:Overall too much electronics for my taste.
I wish I had this... it might keep all four wheels on the ground in semi-eroded terrain.RedRoxx44 wrote:Good- the auto sway bar release.

Chevy Colorado ZR2- 2 inch factory lift, lockers front and rear, skid plates, racing suspension, and a diesel or gas option, or course manual or automatic trans. I usually avoid first model years like the plague. It will compete with Toyota Taco TRD high end which will be similarly priced.
If I sell my other vehicle I will be looking for a Rubicon. I'll drive the FJ till the tires fall off but I want a short wheelbase and lockers front and rear ( like my old red Jeep again, but I don't want to have the build up done myself,hunting for good mechanics etc).
