06 tacoma 4X4 differentials

Does any one know where I can find taller gears for a 06 tacoma X-tra cab V6 4X4. The truck just runs at to high an RPM at highway speeds. I need both front and rear ring and pinion gears. Thanks.

Other than trying Ebay, I'm not sure...
I'm sure someone with more insight will come along.

Check out this site:
www.ring-pinion.com

Is this something you'll be doing on your own? Have you priced out how much it would costs to do the conversion? I can be pretty expensive labor wise to change out all three gearsets. Right now our trucks have 3.73 gears in them. Any thing bigger like say a 3.07, would make you truck pretty gutless, no pull of the line, and you wouldn't have much or a towing capacity.

Out of curiosity, how do those gear sizes compare so what might be found in a passenger car, like maybe a Taurus with a 6-cylinder?

Curiosity...what type of rpm are you running at highway speeds, it shoul not be much more than 2k on a flat stretch?
