    Your truck must be REALLY heavy because mine is about 6k lbs and it drives splendidly with 4.88’s and the 4.88 OVtune Beta. On paper 5.29’s make total sense for anyone heavy and wide 33’s or bigger

    My truck is heavy! Approx 7k at last weighing on 35" KM3's....I wish 5.29's were available when I regeared too (I was an early adopter). However, this new 2.0 tune is legit and I enjoy long 1000k trips over mountain passes, etc now...

    Wow! 7,000 lbs? I thought mine is a pig at 6,500 lbs completely empty. What kind of mileage are you getting? During gear break in driving from Seattle to the southern part of Oregon on I-5 at 60 mph I got only 14.7 mpg

    I have 33” tires and just sliders for armor. My 5.29’s do great, 75mph on the freeway at about 2500 rpm. I get better mileage as well.

    Interesting, I’m running 32” tires (275/70/17, KO2s) and at 60 mph I’m at 2500 rpm. Prior to regearing, I was doing 2500 rpm at 75 mph

    Yeah the manual and auto have different gear rations. I believe there’s a really nice chart in the 5.29 thread.

    If you are never gonna go larger than 35", 5.29 is a waste. 4.88s are intended for up to 35" tire and is the perfect balance.

    If you plan on 37s, then 5.29 is a great choice.

    Most people are getting 5.29s and really don't even need it. Id bet few if any do major amounts of highway driving. I live in Texas and the 7+ hours of highway would suck at high rpms, or slow speed.

    Currently setup is 4.88s with 34s. Sweet spot


    Any taco under 70mph on most any setup will get great MPG. Speed limits here go up to 85 tho

    Whats your set up in weight and any additional mods that would affect drag? Currently on 33 KM3, 3" lift, Prinsu, high clearance rear bumper w/ swing out, sliders, skids and prior to OVTune 2.0 I averaging 15 mpg @ 75 mph. Ran a trip from Houston to Baton Rouge Monday with 2.0 and was getting 17.5 mpg @ 75-80 mph. Gulf coast driving really sucks bc traffic travels 75 - 85 mph and you are usually driving into or cross winds of 10+ mph. I plan on running 35" in the next couple of months I was thinking 5.29 but you would recommend 4.88?

    Edit: My mileage of 17.5 mpg is based on moderate traffic being mindful to draft behind other vehicles. I hate when people post ridiculous MPG numbers bc yes I can also get 20+ mpg @ 65 mph drafting behind full size trucks and semi's on the Houston toll road traffic all day.

    Pretty sure this is the first time I've ever seen someone say to go with 4.88s over 5.29s. Nearly everyone with 4.88s wishes they went to 5.29s (aside from people on stock tires) and I've never seen someone with 5.29s wish they went 4.88s

    STUFF!
    Nitro Gears recommends 5.29 gears for the 2016 and up Tacomas on 33" tires you should check there videos on gearing this specific truck! With 2 overdrive gears 5.29 gears are better suited for this Transmission. But it also has a lot to do with how you drive and how you want the truck to perform. The videos explain it really well.

    Yup! Fully loaded for camp I get anywhere from 12-14 mpg. If I add a 2k offroad trailer, my mpgs drop to 8-10 mpgs.

    That's going to be a hard choice. We live in Katy, my wife's truck runs 33s and 4.88s with the beta 2.0. But we don't really have any added weight other than rocker guards. Her truck does well around town, and much better than it used to on the freeway and open road, but like I said, we haven't started adding weight. I'm not opposed to being slightly over-geared (had 5.13s installed in our Jeep when it was still on 35s) so I kinda wish we had 5.29s, but I won't pay to do it all over again.

    This thread should be called " 2016+ OVTune - You need 4.88s" haha. Seriously, i feel like i'm the only one with stock gears at this point. I know that is not true, obviously. I'm not willing to put them on because I would hate for something to go wrong during the warranty period and not just be out thousands for the regear but also thousands to fix something in the powertrain.

    Unless you had a problem that was somehow directly attributable to the gears (which is highly unlikely), you'd be fine. We had the gear swap done in my wife's truck with ~5,000 miles on the clock.
