longer gears!

I Have the 08 tacoma 4.0 L 6 speed manual. Everyday I commute 100 mi. to and from work. the speed limits on the roads are 65 mph. I know the stock gears are short for towing and carrying loads, but it's killing my fuel mileage. I'm running at about 2500 rpms. Has anyone changed up the 6th gear on there trucks for better mileage and how much approx. does it cost to have it done?

Your best bet would be to switch to a taller rear end gear ratio not just breaking down the trans just to swap sixth gear out with something taller if it even is possible to do so. I'm not even sure they make taller rear gears for Tacomas.
