Thinkin about goin with 35's...

Ive been doin some searching on here and I see that some are goin with 4.56's and some 4.88's. Most of my driving is city/highway. I hardly do any off roading (I have an 89 4runner crawler for that) but sometimes I goto the beach or up in the mountains. Im gettin tired of how loud my nitto mud grapplers are and im wanting to get rid of them to get some new tires.

I have a friend that does gears and gave me a smokin price on 4.88's. Im a lil worried about high rpm's on the highway since this truck is our "family" ride when we go out of town somewhere. So which is better to run, 4.56's or 4.88's??

Next thing is, I have the fabtech 6" lift with the coilovers set at the factory setting. It looks like its gonna be a tight fit for the 35's. Is there any trimming involved?? Should I crank the coilovers up some?

Im sure ill have more questions as this thread goes on. Thanks guys!

I have 35"s on mine with no problems, but I do have 6" lift plus 3" body lift, so I'm not sure how it will work with just 6"

Also no problems with the slightly taller gearing. She runs 1600 rpm @60mph in top

the better question is which can you go with without changing carriers. There is a carrier break in the tacoma and which gearset works with your carrier depends on your stock gearing. If you have 3.73s you will have to go 4.56 or you will need a new carrier/locker to go 4.88. If you have the stock 3.91 you will have to go 4:88 or require a carrier change to go 4.56.

Well just by lookin at my truck closer I dont think I will be able to fit the 35's. Looks like it will rub the front bumper and other things. I do not want to to a body lift and I cant really crank up my coilovers more. Guess ill stick with the 33's

35"s on a 3" lift requires extensive trimming, pounding, and chopping to fit.

I have the 6" fabtech lift. What all will I have to get rid of to make em fit? This is a daily driver, and doesnt see much offroad use and if it does it isnt anything major i have a crawler for that.
