I own a one of a kind Tacoma. It's a 1995 PreRunner. The ONLY 1995 PreRunner. It was a 4x4 chassis that a we put the components from a totalled 1999 DLX into. End result is a 6 lug 2wheel drive with a 2.7 and an Automatic.
I love the truck. It means a lot to me, my dad and I worked on it together and got it rolling. I don't plan on selling it anytime soon.
A 4 banger coupled to an automatic transmission turning a Toyota 8" with a 4.10 ring and pinion running 30" tires isnt very fun. I'm thinking it's time for a regear.
I have some old rear ends from parts trucks we've used for projects on my Dad's 04 DC 4x4. Im thinking about taking one and rebuilding it with a TrueTrac and new gears. Also I have a set of 31x10.5x15's that I'd like to use. I figure I can gear for the bigger tires and maybe get a little more pep out of the engine since we all know that 3rz aint no iForce.
My question is what size... I'm stuck on 4.56 or 4.88... It's my DD, so it see's a lot of highway use. Which is why I'm hesitent on the 4.88's, but I'm afraid I won't see a difference between my 4.10's and the 4.56's.
