    Hey guys I have some questions that I wanted to see if anyone else has experienced. I have a 2011 Tacoma TRD Double Cab and I went with a leveling kit and 33's. I love the look of it but I seem to be going through a lot of gas. With the V6 I didn't think going up to a 33 would be so dramatic. It also seems like my transmission seems to jump up and down out of gear more often then before too. Again with a V6 I didn't think I was going to see so many changes just by going with a 33inch tire. I guess my question is if this is normal and what should I do about it? I was thinking of taking it to the dealership to see if they can reprogram my computer to adjust for the tire size or maybe just upgrade the gears to a 4:88

    4.88 is a big jump. If you have an automatic 4.30 will get you close to stock gearing and if you have a manual you'll want 4.56.

    Thanks for the response! So do you think that it is a gear issue at this point rather than having my computer reprogramed to running a 33?

    It’s a gearing issue with the trans shifting differently for sure. I had issues before the re-gear too.

    What load range are your new tires? Heavier tires will suck down fuel as well.
