    I just purchased some new 37 x 13.50 x 20 Nitto Mud Grappler tires for my 2006 4x4 tacoma. How necessary is it to regear my truck with this new setup?

    I'm running 33's and I want/need to re-gear. 37's will make for a pretty fast crawl speed, i would definitely consider it. If it's a manual it will also help to prolong the life of your clutch

    I would say you should re-gear, i don't think its very good for your engine and transmission to be stressed like that.

    I have 8 inches of suspension lift. I have 35s on it now that are worn down so they are being replaced with the new 37s. Didn't have any rubbing issues at all with 8 inches.

    I believe you have 3.73 gears currently, so 4.56 would return you pretty close to stock.

    Yeah, I had previous trimming when I had the 6 inch lift with 35s. I think it will be okay. I guess I'm going with 4.88 gears. They should suffice for 37s. Any idea what the cost generally runs out the door?

    450 or so with a master install kit and solid spacer. You will probably have someone else install so I have no idea what the running rate for the install is
