Toyota Explination (when I called about this): I explain that this happened on both my 2002 4cyl and now my 2005 6cyl - they said they did this to allow folks pulling trailers to do so with curse (mispelled on purpose) control - the thing is set to downshift under any load increase (going up a slight incline???).

Helpful trick: while this doesn't solve the issue. it does help alot. If you are cruising at 70mph or less, the minute you see a hill, drop it out of OD...the truck will cruise all day long in "4" as long as you are not pushing over 70. That double downshift / double upshift cycle will stop. Once you hit level ground again, slap it back over into OD.
