    I ran the numbers comparing the 6speed MT the way Toyota released it with the 4.30 pinion vs the 6speed Auto regeared to a 5.29, and the numbers for the final drive and rpm's at any given speeds almost match exactly. Thoughts on why the 5.29 wouldn't be the perfect fix over 4.88's? These comparisons were done using Toyota factory tire size as well.

    I just did 5.29 on my 2020 OR and I am loving the difference. The mileage is better as well. Highway and in the city I really notice the difference.

    just coming up to my 500mile oil replacement.

    What size tire are you running, and how is the highway driving?

    The highway right now is anchorage to Palmer Alaska. So 65ish. On 275/70/18 BF Ko2 just over 32”. Best change I have made on the truck by far. The mileage was terrible from YYC to ANC stock. Noticed even the Toyota gauge was showing better mileage then I ever had when I left the shop.
