Absoloutely... plus trimming the rear wheel well plastic too. I also take issue with the repeated use of the term "a little trimming" because it is not a little... it is a lot and will take many cycles of trimming... finding new rubbing etc. Also fender flare damaging between trimming sessions is likely. I need a new rear fender because people lie about these issues or at least misrepresent them. Note there is no trimming sticky... ever wonder why? Because most people are still rubbing under compression while the wheel is turned various amounts.

I lost 4 mpg. It is not a big deal for braking or power but its a huge mileage hit. Gears will get half of it back.

Prolly 1500+ assuming you drive into the shop.

Thanks for the info devl. I think I'm going back down to 265 on a 17x9 wheel for now. At least until my warrant my runs out lol...

You can order assebled front diff with gears and assembled third 3rd member, with gears, for $1300ish plus shipping from east coast gear. Add $1000 for an ARB locker. Then you have to pay shipping both ways (send your diffs back or pay $400 core charges). Then labor... you can install yourself since they have done the hard part or pay 4-6 or so hours of labor for professional install. Toyota will try to charge too many hours for the install.

What you don't want to do is try to set up gears yourself or have anyone but a dedicated rear end guy try to install gears... plus you need a new carrier to install 4.10 gears on a V6 so using ecgs is a no brainer if you won't be replacing it with an air locker.

Don't think you are just gonna order gears and an install kit.

That's exactly what I was thinking lol... I'm thinking I'm going kpt's route. Subtle suspension and wheel change for on/off road versatility. Thanks for the help devl and moose
