    Hello my Name is Scott. New owner of a 08' Tacoma. specs of truck are TRD Sport LB 4.0L V6 4x4 Auto. I plan on lifting 3" or 6" on 35x12.50x20's, but my question is what Gears are you guys running? Combined with your lift and tires(6" -3"). or how much can you lift and go up tire size without re-gearing? I think stock gearing is 3.73?

    I have searched everywhere and could not find a topic on Gearing what so ever. I figured this would fit in this particular section, if not I do apologize for my Noob mistake.

    Well any input, help, advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    To fit 35"s on a 3" lift you will have to do a lot of trimming and I think a body mount chop. On a 3" lift most people run 285/75/16 (33") or 265/75/16 (32"). With anything bigger than the 265/75 you will have to trim and most likely remove the mudflaps.

    As far as 6" lifts and gearing go, you'd have to ask somebody else. I've never really looked into it because that's more height outta my Taco then I would personally want. Toku58 on Toyota Nation has a 6" lift with 35"s and I think he is still running stock gears. You should PM him.

    thanks a lot! I will PM him definitely. I was under the impression that you couldn't go below a 17" rim size due to the Brake caliper diameter? I could be wrong.

    How do you like your 3" lift? I myself don't care for 6" of lift, but i threw that out there for an example. How is the power of your truck after the lift, and new tires/wheels? Thanks again.

    I messed up. Ignore the part where I put 16" wheel. That was just for me (I will continue running my 16" wheels).

    I personally don't have my truck lifted yet. When I drove one with a 3" lift and 33"s I didn't notice much of a difference in power. I personally plan on running the 265/75 so I can still use my stock wheels with no spacers.
