    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    I'd go 4.88 for sure. But why do you want 37's.... They look way too big on Tacoma's IMO.
    As for 'Posi-trac', do you mean a limited slip, or a locker?

    i have 4.88s with 35's also and the combination is great, and i also have detroit lockers in the rear, which i am guessing is what your trying to looking for. I had my local offroad shop build my truck but i am not sure about the gen. 2 and what is available but im sure there is the same. But the truck rides out great i love it.

    4.56 will give you about the same ratio as stock, 4.88 will be a bit taller. Seeing as you have 37'' tires mpg is a non issue therefore I say go big or go home, 4.88!
