Why is it you always keep your gear in 5th rather than Drive (and 6th) and let the Tow Haul handle the shifting? I understand on the grades but why also on the flats? I've seen this discussed on the Tundra forums but have not gotten a good understanding of the rationale.

Greg....with my Sequoia, I only use my shifting setting on grades. The rest of the time I keep it set in Drive, use the Tow Haul always, and rarely use the 4WD at all. RPMs will peak out on the steepest climb, but no strain for the most part.

Kelvin

That pocket is easy to remove, carefully insert a thin putty knife around its edges to undo its clips. Drill a hole in the back of the pocket for the wires to go through. You will have to make the harness longer.

Great Video !

BTW I mounted my P2 controller in the face of the dash below the Traction button in my '14 Tundra SR5 Double Cab with bench seat. I posted on TundraTalk.net how I did it.

I use the S mode all the time and find myself in 4 the majority of the time and 5 in the flats. I only use 6 when not towing.

I love the way the Tow/Haul mode changes the throttle response and shift points. I use it when towing in town and getting on the Hwy., not so much in 5 as it wants to shift a bit sooner under load.

Just came back to Missouri over this same pass through the Ike tunnel. No issues at all with the Tundra. We are only pulling a 23FB though.
I kept it in S 5 almost all the time, and used the cruise control. My back is acting up, and using the cruise helped my comfort, quite a bit.
We went out on 24 through Colo Springs, then over to Buena Vista and up to Leadville. I was getting over 10 mpg with some tanks better than others. I try to set it at 67 and ignore it, but I did get going a little faster from time to time depending on traffic. Not sure if the racks and kayak cut into our mpg or not.
