And now for the if you go 4.56s, what speedo gear would you need? And where do you get a speedo gear? The stealer ship?

i'm an automatic with 4.88s. from what i hear, 4.56s are the way to go with 285s and the 5-speed. i'm a huge fan of the 4.88s with 285 tires on the auto though. very peppy -- feels a tad more torquey than stock.

i ended up with a 33-tooth speedo gear. got it from the dealership. they had a hell of a time finding the right one. i think we got the 31-tooth first and had to go back to the drawing board to get the correct part. super simple job to get it installed and now my speedo reads about 1-2mph high at 70mph, verified by gps.

edit: i'm at ~2200-2300 rpms at 60mph. feels very nice. between olympia and vancouver where i-5 is 70mph, i cruise around 74mph which works out to about 2500rpm. still get 18mpg.

Ahh bummer! That sucks. Worth the wait though. Are you doing the install yourself?

sure, i paid $2k even out-the-door for parts and labor, front and rear differentials regeared to 4.88s. that total was almost split evenly between parts and labor, if i recall correctly, and included some additional machining they had to do.

the shop was "just differentials" over in cashmere. great customer service and very well versed in toyota applications.

Are you 5sp or auto? What size tire are you running or planning on running? I'm running 4.88s with my 285/75r16 tires and automatic transmission and have been very happy.

With 5sp and 285s, I'd go with 4.56, but if you've got an auto I'd go with the 4.88s.

I've got 285/75/16s I'm running and it's an automatic. What's the difference between the 2. I mean 4.56 or 4.88? Some people tell me I could run either one. But I want be getting something like this for a long time even if I decide too. Got to wait till I get into my field and then start making the money. Working part time has got me a long way with the truck so far but now got to save back up for major mods like that. Haha!!
