    re gearing doesnt affect the warranty. For 33's, a 4.10 ratio would put it back to near stock. You could go with 4.56's if you want to be slightly over geared.

    So are these toyota gears or aftermarket..do i need to change front as well to match? Also by not changing am i hurting anything...feels like im boggin engine more. Cause lower rpms if i go 4:10 will that give better off road performance?

    Re gearing will give better performance all around. Cost is between $500.00 and $700.00 per axel. Yes, If your 4x4, you need to change out the front and rear.
