4Banger and 35s Q
Can a 4 cylinder handle 35's (315x75xR16) on stock gears? Does anyone know how it performs going from stock hieght and tires to a higher lift and 35s?

Large 12-01-2012 12:14 PM

Sluggish I'm guessing. Go with 4.88s.

Large 12-01-2012 12:15 PM

Sorry I couldn't be more help. Plenty of people run 33s with the 4 banger and say its sluggish and struggles uphill.

YotaBoyz 12-01-2012 12:22 PM

Ya I cant imagine going uphill with 35s...although its not too bad where I am. Where can I find new gears?

You will NEED to regear unless you dont care about power. There are many places for gears just do a google search and you will get a ton of places that sell them.

YotaBoyz 12-01-2012 12:53 PM

I mean am I going to be incredibly slow with them on without regearing? haha

Clearly you know enough to know you'll need to regear, sooo...

YotaBoyz 12-01-2012 01:00 PM

Has anyone ran stock gears on 35s?

The big question, is your truck manual or auto?

If auto, without a doubt I'd regear to 5.29s.

If manual, you can get by on stock 4.30 gears quite well. I DD my truck and drove around for a couple of months like that before I regeared to 5.29s. No problems at all except for the obvious decrease in power but I changed my shifting habits to make up for that. I lost about 2-3 highway mpg going from 33s to 35s on stock gears and another 2-ish going to 5.29s.

Best combo between power and efficiency for a manual is probably 4.88s though.

I had 32's on my '94 5-lug, 22RE, manual trans.

It was terrible.
Needed to downshift to maintain 80 on even a slight incline, and going up a grade, if someone cut me off and I had to drop below 50, I was screwed and could never recover.

YotaBoyz 12-01-2012 01:43 PM

Ive heard 4.88s would be good and then 5.29s... I'll eventually regear but idk which one. Is it really going to be super slow?

Pretty much kiss your first gear and fifth gear goodbye. Gonna be wayyyyy slow. 4.88's and 33"s get you back to about the stock powerband. For 35's id go 5.29.
Dont expect to be able to go above 60 tho if you arent gonna regear.

Aw hell yeah haha, slow lane baby!....everywhere....:( Ill search for some 5.29s

IDtrucks 12-01-2012 02:02 PM

I think you can get by fine with 4.88s. Will it be slow as shit? Yes but thats what you get with a 4 banger haha

Thats true unfortuanately haha, I'll just avoid any type of incline haha. No bridges, no hills, no....curbs before driveways....:ballchain:

YotaBoyz 12-01-2012 04:35 PM

So would 5.29s be the best for it?

Large 12-01-2012 04:45 PM

4.88s would be ideal.

toyodajeff 12-01-2012 04:48 PM

Just put the 35s on it and see how you like it.I have a second gen prerunner with 35s and its a 2.7 4cylinder with a manual.I noticed a decrease in power but its not a big deal to me. I get about 20 mpgs. My trucks not fast at all but I can pull into traffic without worrying ive gone offroad to and stalled it ive gotten more use to the clutch now though. But if you have 4x4 you could.pit it in 4lo.
Ill try to post up a zero to sixty video of my truck one day

OP, for a DD, 4.88's will be ideal. It will be sluggish but not horrid.
For a weekend wheeler/trail crawler, 5.29's will be awesome

its 18.5 but my tires are about 11% bigger than stock so 20mpgs

Rich91710 12-01-2012 05:17 PM

No way you're getting 18.5 on 35's either.

With any gearing.
