Re-gearing



So has anyone heard anything about regearing? Since 2006 Iíve been calling The 4 Wheel Drive Store every other month asking if itís available yet. First they said it wasnít availableÖthen they said it, was but just for a short amount that was already sold outÖ they then said that they are fixing the bugs and that the 2nd batch isnĎt available yet. Whatís the deal! They did say it will cost around $1,700 with install. Does any of this sound familiar?

I know, and I keep getting the run around on the topic. It can't be good for my truck to have 6Ē lift with 35ís and not re-geared, I already have 40k on her!

How does it feel? Do you do your correction for tires size when you figure fuel mileage? I have 3" lift with 33s and its hardly noticable. If your truck came with 3.73 gears then it will be responding like you have 3.26 gears right now. What are you looking to install some 4.10s maybe? Do you plan on installing them by youreslf? What kinda trouble are they giving you, shouldn't be hard to find some 4.10 or even 4.56 gears for your truck, then a shop or yourself to install.

I was told that the gearing for the back are the same as all Toyota trucks. The front are different and were still under development. I wouldnít want to do it myself, too many things that could go wrong. Yeah I had the 3" lift with 33ís when I first got my truck, I had to go bigger. You might be okay for a while. I know I need new gearing, it feel sluggish when I drive off the lineÖlike I taking off in 2nd gear. Iím not a 100% sure what gearing Iím would put in, Iím thinking maybe 4.88ís.

A good rule of thumb for the price of re-gearing is $500 to $600.00 per axel installed. My last re-gear cost me $1150.00 OTD. Any more than $1200.00 and I think you are getting screwed. my $0.02

I havent re geared my Tacoma......yet. Also, remember I have no front diff. BUT, The second gen Tacomas have the same 7.5" front diff as the old ones. Im not aware of any changes that would prohibit a gear change.

I have re-geared my 08 prerunner. After the 6in lift w/ 33's i noticed the take off was pretty sluggish and of course the MPG sucked. 4wp's did mine out the door for $700 (or close too) and i really noticed a huge diffrence in the take off as well better performance at highway speeds. As for the MPG's, was getting 15 before, now about 17-18. Not a big diffrence in the MPG's, but it did help some. No other engine mods done yet. Went w/ 4:10's

Good info! 4:10's I figured would be a good match with 33's.

That is good info dude, Thanks! I bet it did help. You have a prerunner huh, does that mean you didnít change your front gearing then?
I have been looking around for a place that will re-gear back and front, I might have found a place that has them, not a 100% sure until I get them.

I've seen a lot of guys here were saying 4.10 is good to regear...obviously not
unless you're running on stock tires. 4.10 can't handle 33" no matter what brands your tires are. 4.88 is a perfect match for 33" and 5.29 is great for 35 and up to 44. Why? been there and done that!
anyone planning to regear? get a bigger gear 'cause most of us here are riding on bigger tires. thumps up for owning a toco!one more thing, average for regearing is $700-$1300 depending on what kind of truck you got.
