    Hello everyone ...
    I need help from you pro's on gearing swap..
    here it is short and sweet.. I want to regear because I run Dick Cepeks crushers and there 32.5" tall and I dog offroad and gas mileage got murdered so I want to get torque back..Its a 2010 tacoma with a 5 sp manual trans with 4:10s motor has no mods and is a 4 banger..
    so 4:56's right (nittros gears said I need a front carrier because there gear is thick) or 4:88 no new carrier req'd..
    this is a everyday driver.
    1: do I need a new carrier in front!
    2: 4:56 vs 4:88
    3: add arb air locker(heard seals go and need changing every 2 years)
    4: machined thrust washers or crush washers?
    5: brands and links(yukon and just differanials I know about and they are very pricy JT QOUTE is $2550.00 in parts with arb and upgraded air comp!).
    thank you very much ...
    Happy New Year!!

    ...too much shit to list.
    I can't help you with all your questions, but I will tell you you're really not going to get your gas mileage any better with a regear. You'll get the missing torque back, but the gas mileage is a wash. You *might* get better gas mileage in town depending on how much skinny pedal you use, but you'll end up burning more gas on the highway.

    Personally I think 4.88's are too tall for a daily driver, but then again you've got the 4 banger.

    You're local so I'd suggest you give Rearend Specialties in Santa Clara a CALL. They will give you a good price over the phone to try to get you to come in. Just right down the number they tell you. I pulled both my third members off to and handed them over to reagear and it cost me less than $800. My buddy had his regular cab prerunner regeared and ARB added there as well.

    No matter how you look at it, the ARB isn't cheap. You can find them online for ~$900 or so. Also I'd suggest calling East Coast Gear Supply and I'm sure they could answer all the questions for you.

    You can get thin 4.56 that work with your existing carrier, but it's pretty common to go 4.88 for the 4 banger 5 speed.

    2800rpm at 70mph. It's a pretty quiet motor, so tire noise is still the loudest thing in the cab at 70mph.

    And you haven't even thrown speedo correction into your price mix yet .
