Question Factory gear ratios?

I have a 95 Tacoma 2.7 5 speed manual 4X4. I hooked up a tach to see how many RPMs it is running at 55mph. It is running at 2050 RPM at 55. That seems aweful low to me for a 4 cylinder. I am wondering what the factory gearing is and how many RPMs it should be running?

THIS CHART IS FOR '95.5-04 MODELS ONLY!
The axle code for your rig can be found on the manufacture's sticker located on the driver's side door jamb as follows:

First digit:

A = 7.5" ring gear
B = 8" ring gear
Next two digits:

01 = 3:42
02 = 3:58
03 = 4:10
04 = 4:56
05 = 3:15
06 = 3:91
07 = 4.30
Last digit:

A = 2 Pinion, Open
B = 4 Pinion, Open
C = 2 Pinion OEM Limited Slip
some '98-00 models have shown a BO code of "???" on the door plate; so far this turns out to be a 3.91 gear ratio, at least for the 5sp. RZN171L-CRPDKAB with factory 31s/265s should be 4.56 with the AT.

Thanks. Now just have to figure out what gears are in there. I would like the rpms a little higher at 55 mph.
