    Well, I think I've decide that I'm gonna install a 6" Fabtech kit on my Tacoma. I'll be running 35" tires. My question is, with a 08 4x4 DC 4.0 and auto trany, what ratio do I need and who makes gears for my truck?? I've read and read on here and can't find a specific ratio mentioned.
    Thanks for any help.

    4.56 is the ratio you will want, but I havent researched who has gears for the trucks yet.

    What about 4.88's ?? Or would that be too low. Lots of other Taco guys run it on the earlier years. Though they have a 3.4L, and we have a 4.0L.....I might go 4.88's so I have a better crawl ratio. Anyways why don't you use a gear calculator?? http://www.izook.com/gearcalc.htm:D I would say its between 4.56's or 4.88..

    silver back answered it, they have great products for a good price, and great customer service, tell them what you want to do and they will tell you what will work best to what you plan on doing.

    Thanks, y'all. After looking around, it seems that regearing will be a very expensive endeavor. Are any of y'all running 35s with stock gears?? How bad is it as far as take-off and running highway speeds??
