    1st gen 5 lugs use the 7.5 and the older toyota pickup minis use the 7.5 diff. i know this because brian (beefed taco) used an 80s pickup axle because its narrower. but he swapped over brakes and 3rd fron his tacoma axle.

    Another option is to buy a third member built with a locker and the gear ratio you want. ECGS sells these as well. http://eastcoastgearsupply.com/i-788575-tacoma-non-eld-t100-tundra-3rd.html This way you can just change out your third member.[/QUOTE]

    In searching for the 8.4" third member assemblies I came across the Just Differentials website. Looks like they could also set up anything you want. Not too cheap though. Just thought I'd mention it.

    just installed my 4.10s last night with 245/75s. speedo didn't match up. either going to go up in tire size or look for a set of 3.90s.

    Anyone have a 3.90 ring and pinion wanna trade for my 4.10 full 3rd member.

    2hrs to install, But man it feels good to have the truck zip around again.

    If you have a manual tranny you can replace the speedo gear in the transmission with the one from 2nd gen 4cyl 4wd/prerunner.

    Dude man, Gearing Numericaly lower for speedo correct is blasphemous. Just go slower and enjoy the tourque increase.

    I should've worded differently BC I wanted the gearing more like a stock 5lug which i would think maximize mpgs and the 4.10s seem to give more pep and towing capability.

    just got 23.5 mpg corrected, mixed city/highway with 4.10s and 245/75 revo 2s. seems like the gears help mpgs around town eliminating the lugging.

    Alright alright alright fellas... i have a 011 Ac with the 2.7 and the automatic haha. I plan on running 245/75/15 all weather tires on black method race wheels. The truck has the original tires on it and i already think it needs 410s, so should i plan on using 456s? Again its a automatic and id like to gain more cruisability in cruise control.

    put the ratio the stock 4cyl auto prerunner has, i don't know what it is but hopefully someone will chime in.

    4.10 is what the 4cyl 5spd pr has, at first i didn't like it, but now i do and feel like toyota found the sweet spot for torque and mpgs. do the same only for the auto.

    Ok, didn't know where else to ask this question so I hope someone has the answer here. I had the rear end of my '12 5 lug reg cab automatic jacked up today and noticed that if I turn the wheel forward on the drivers side the passengers side wheel turns backward(in neutral or in drive) so I went around and tried it on the passenger side and when I turn the passenger side wheel the drivers side does nothing. Is this normal? Also, I do have the ALSD(don't know if that's a factor or not). There seems to be a lot of knowledge on here so any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    Typically with open diff the wheels will spin opposite of each other like you said, so I'd say your diff is open. I don't know why the driver's side didn't move, but if you had an LSD or auto locker it would've spun the same direction as the other wheel.
