    MPG's are tricky... It mostly depends on how you drive....

    4.56 gears may have been a better choice, 4.88s seem to work better with 35s on the second gen trucks

    Hey krish. Along with regearing I would redo the trans fluid. It feels a lot smoother with less restriction, along with changing the diff fluid. Keep in mind you have big tires and a lift. That affects your mpgs a lot.

    Ou got the diff and trans fluid done 76? Nvm it should be fine. Maybe run some seafoam in the gas and injector cleaner. Its cheap and worth a shot

    I would say the gearing too. I have the stock 373's running 33 12.50 20s and I'm getting about what your getting. I'm sure yours is a bit more effortless than mine with the 4:88 gears.:)

    I have been looking for something like this chart for a while. Not very hard I guess. I have been thinking about re-gearing to a 4:11 or 4:10. Do any of the aftermarket gear companies make them for our second gens? I know the 4cyl 4wd comes with them but toyota wants my first born for them, and thats not even installed.:(
