    I have an 02 TRD V6 manual with the stock size 265/70R16 tires. I believe the rear end is geared to 4.10. When I drive on the highway the engine is at 3000 RPM at 130 km/h (80 mph). Are all first gen TRD tacomas geared this way?

    This truck is no fun to drive on long highway trips at that engine speed. I also developed a nasty driveline howl which I assume is due to the driveline running so fast for so long on the highway.

    Look at build!
    yes its 4:10's if your running 3k at 80...thats where im at as well but ive come to find out that our coasting speed is 65-70 and you will stay around 2500-2750 and get about 18.5-21 MPG at least thats about what my avg's are

    Easy solution. Don't drive 130km, you'll save money on fuel too.
