    BUCKLE UP! It makes it harder for Aliens to pull you out of your Truck.
    6 speed? Let's get a group buy going for GEAR VENDORS OVERDRIVE units and have 10 :eek: speeds!

    Or even getting a slightly better ratio for 6th gear made by someone would be great in itself.

    I'd pay for the gears to be cut, then throw em in there. Be fantastic.

    I'd be interested if it is a higher gear ratio and therefor better highway MPG.

    Anyone know if a 6 speed from a nwer tacoma 4x4 4cy. would line up with a 2002 4x4 4cy.? I need to pull the tranny to replace a bearing and was thinking of the almighty MPG (I have a 1 hour communte each way) and though 6 is better then 5.

    four cylinders do not come with 6 speeds only v6s
    also the 6 speeds have such a low first gear ratio that top gear ratio is not that different so gas mileage would not improve much

    Well, there you go, not any reason to do it. Toyota should make a 6 speed with higher ratio on the 6th gear for better highway MPG. Most of my drive to work is highway and interstate so it would help my bottom line.
