    i think you would need to find out the size of the tundra's differential. i think that reagearing is too confusing so hopefully someone else will see this who knows more about regearing

    I went to my dad place and did the turn one side to see how many turns the third member does and it did litter over 2 Now I'm confuse the tundras supose to be 3.9 or 4.0

    No they're not. The axles are longer on the Tundra.

    Thats correct!

    If the 3rd member from tundra is 8.4" it should fit.

    Is your truck a 4wd/prerunner or a 5lug? I think the 5lug has a 7.5 rear axle

    Doesn't a 5 lug have a 27 spline count versus the 6 lugs 30 spline count? I'm having a helluva time finding that.

    From what I researched the 5lug carrier is different then 6lug carrier so 4.10 gears from 6lug wont fit 5lug without changing the carrier...

    rcfreak201 is selling me a 4.10 Ring and pinion for $200. I think this is a good deal. What do you think?
