When selecting a terrain mode

If you are unsure which mode is appropriate, select MOGUL when the four-wheel drive control switch is in L4 or select MUD & SAND when it is in H4.

When it is difficult to generate traction

MUD & SAND mode provides the largest amount of tire slippage, followed by LOOSE ROCK, MOGUL and ROCK mode.

Drivability can be improved by selecting a mode which provides a smaller amount of tire slippage than the current mode when the amount of tire slippage is large, or conversely selecting a mode which provides a larger amount of tire slippage than the current mode when the amount of tire slippage is small.
