Just as the title says. The 6Mt has it. So do the 4Runners with part time and full time systems. Not sure why the 5AT was left out. Definitely would improve driving on wet and snowy surfaces.
I think you mean Torsion.
Nice explanation Rover!!!:cheers:Nope,
Toyoda Machine Works Ltd., in 2003, purchased the worldwide Torsen division from Robert Bosch / Zexel Corporation. Zexel Torsen, Inc. was then renamed Toyoda-Koki Automotive Torsen North America Inc. to reflect this change. The company name change became effective September 1, 2003.
Koyo Bearing Corporation merged with Toyoda Machine Works and formed JTEKT. This new company will have its focus on four major product lines of which Torsen is part of their Automotive Driveline business. Our Rochester, NY division has been renamed JTEKT Torsen North America, Inc. which is responsible for sales of Torsen differentials in North America.

I'd be willing to bet that this addition/revision would have come to the FJ if production of the model series lasted long enough. I believe the current 4Runner Multimode system offered on the V-6 would be ideal for the FJ. It allows 2wd, AWD (w/center diff free), and 4WD (w/center diff locked)
Auto manufacturers "reserve" certain features to introduce in subsequent model years. In our case, it's been things like side visors, rear view camera, TSC off, etc.
So does every U.S. Land Cruiser, FJ80 and later (since 1991), and they all have auto trannies.The 6Mt has it. So do the 4Runners with part time and full time systems.
I would prefer to have the Torsen center diff on my AT FJC, but if it's wet or snowy enough to need it then engaging the part-time 4WD is not going to hurt anything and you will get 98% of the benefit of the full-time system.Not sure why the 5AT was left out. Definitely would improve driving on wet and snowy surfaces.
Hence the VSC disable switch you need to install! Takes about 10 minutes and BAM! Instant disconnect of the electronic nannies! Then you can do donuts and power slides and everything. :rocker:It pisses me off that the stupid thing won't do power slides in the snow as it is! Every time I start to get a good slide going that darn A-Trac kicks in and straightens everything right out!
I wanna be a drift driver......:wave:
