Hi guys, I have just bought the new double cab 4x4 Hilux 4ltr petrol and so far im pretty happy with it.

I was told at the dealer to turn the traction control off when 4wheel driving.

when in h4 I have to press the button to turn the traction control off.

when in L4 the stability automatically turns off (the light comes ON) but to turn the traction control off I have to hold the button for around 7-10secs.

Q. Should I be turning the traction control off while in L4 or leaving it on?

I didn't realy notice the difference on or off, the hilux seems to climb everything that ive attempted to go up so far without a lift kit which leads me to another problem being the exhaust that crosses over underneath the gearbox mount and hangs rather low for my liking, and would hope I can have this modified in the future.

I never bother turning T/C off in my prado unless I need to, and I have taken it off road many times.

E.g If you are on soft-ish sand, its often better to have it off as your wheels will always spin a little anyway.

a few people have told me that in 4x4 with the traction on, it will eventually stuff my diff?? I thought it worked off of the brakes.
