    06 TRD 6cyl auto. Has 285/75-16 BFG at's on it. Mainly a DD no offroading or towing. No that I expect huge MPG's but what on average increase will you see re gearing. Forgot what stock is but going to 4.10's worth it or go higher? Truck is not used for highway at all mainly 55 mph all the time. Just wondering if a $1000+ re gearing job is going to be much worth the MPG's in the long run or rust leave it alone.

    Also running a full cap. Can't be to bad for mpg but it does have its weight so maybe worth taking off.

    Dont regear to save on MPGs. You regear to get back the power you lost getting bigger tires.
