    that size and 4.10 youl l be fine. if you really want to regear than 4.30 for 32's would work well

    are you sure you have 4.10 right now....is yours a 5 lug or 6 lug?

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.

    I'm with you on that one Chris i just put on these bad boys 33"x12.5"x15's and I want to re gear It just feels like I'm in 2nd if I take off from a hill flat ground is okay but I'm still going to re gear some time soon.

    ALso depends on what kind of 32 you go with. I went with a mud terrain 43 and was pretty heavy and yes i wanted to regear. If you go with a lighter all terrain the rotational mass might not be too bad but once you get to 33 is think its mandatory to regear! Im torn still between 4.56 or 4.88 :(

    Dont bother asking the dealer you have a 4:10 along with me. The dealer will take forever to figure it out then ask or tell you a 4 cylinder prerunner doesnt exist lol i get it all the time

    Haha!! sorry:p.. Very anxious to see what you decide on.. although a down side to 4:88 over 4:56, dropping a tire size back to 32 if you ever decided to in the future wont be as dramatic.. That is if you ever wanted to:rolleyes:

    It was raining all weekend, so no pics. I don't have a computer at home anymore anyway. If I go out of town Saturday, I can put some up then.

    I did take it out muddin Sunday. Went throught mud just fine. I really can't tell any loss of power between these 305's and the 265's (32') I had before.

    Doesnt look much different than my gallary pics.

    I'd like to see a clearance pic for the body mount. Do the regular cabs have different shaped mounts?

    I don't keep track of mileage. It gets low I put gas in it.

    I will take pics at full lock and a little less than full lock and with the wheels straight ahead on flat ground so you can see the body mount clearance. When I went muddin, I only heard it hit plastic once. I'm pretty sure I never hit the body mount but haven't looked yet.

    Keep in mind too, that I still have the stock UCA's, so my castor keeps the front tires more foreward than those with aftermarket UCA's, so my tires will be further away from the body mount than those with better alignments (aftermarket UCA's).

    Can you maybe keep track on the next tank for everyone here on TW with a 4 banger afraid of big tires! Reset odometer, when you fill up divide miles (after correcting for larger diameter) by amount put in! We would all really appreciate it!

    I'm not sure if there should be any correcting allowed for the 33's? My speedo at 60MPH was off by 2MPH with 32's. Now with 33's at 60 MPH it's 100% correct according to every "your speed is" thing and my GPS.

    I will wait till the light comes on, put about 20 bucks in the tank, make note of how many gallons it was and set the ODO and by the time I get back home the light will probablly be back on again and it will be all freeway miles.

    As a note. I remember when I put 32's on, I only got about 290 miles out of a full tank (full according to the fuel guage) but don't recall how much was freeway or street miles. So figure 33's are gonna be worse than that.

    All I know is $40 in my tank will get me from almost the pacific ocean CA to Reno, give or take 20 miles. If anybody is worried about MPG probablly best to skip 33's. I don't mind spending money on gas,... it helps out the economy!

    Except for the whole global warming thing.

    Soon as UPS guy gets here I will see if I can take a couple pics at full lock. The rest of the pics will have to wait till the weekend.

    How do you correct for the larger tire diameter?
