    17" dick cepek rims with 33" nitto mudgrapplers tires, 3" lift, Fishing rod rack.
    I have an 09 tacoma with 3in suspension lift on 33x12.5x17 tires. Which gears would be best to run for better gas mileage?

    you loose gas mileage on the freeway you only gain city if at all. Its mostly to return the power. Closest to stock would be 410s

    3" OME lift with 885 coils on nitrocharger 90000 shocks with 5mm trim packer on driver's side, TC UCAs, Rear OME Dakar leafs with nitrocharger shocks, All-pro U-bolt flip kit and 3* Toytec shims, extended rear brakelines, 16" Raceline Rockcrusher 887 wheels with 3.6" backspacking, BFG KM2 305/70/16 tires, Doug Thorley header, Doug Thorley catback exhaust, Volant CAI with ram air, Weathertech floor mats, Kicker 12" sub, Kenwood 500W RMS amp, Relentless Fab front and rear bumpers, 4.88 gears, custom flatbed with swing out tire carrier
    Bingo!

    And I'm assuming you're a V6. I agree with the above statement because I would rather be overgeared than undergeared. You could get away with 4.10s also, but I'd rather have 4.56

    OP wants better MPGs...

    OEM 4.10s or 4.11s are the best options for a 3" Lift w/ 33s
