    Is it worth it to regear to a 5.29 with a 2 wheel drive 2017 sport? I'm sure someone has asked this, but I'm not going to delve in 205 pages to find out. Thank you.

    @adhumston do you have a 6MT? I'm looking for a set of stock 4.30 takeoffs. Thanks.

    Automatic. In any case, the thirds were sent back to ECGS as cores.

    After 5.29 regear in an Automatic, what gear are folks using when towing? I believe with stock gears folks recommended staying out of overdrive gears. Does that still apply after a regear? Thanks!

    All my rigs are purpose built. From crawling to camping. I also enjoy a nice stock truck for what that’s worth. Toyota’s are the jam!
    So I would upgrade if I used my truck to tow on the regular or if you have weighed it down so much that it needs it.

    If your looking for the transmission to not up shift so quickly, and your wanting your gears to hold longer than I would say a tune.

    I did both. Gears and then the Tune. The gears helped me with the weight and gave the truck some more pull down low.
    I did experience that the trans didn’t up shift so quickly with the 5.29s, in the end I still tuned the vehicle so the shift patterns were to my liking.

    Thanks @JoeCOVA, @Texoma, and others for the valuable info. I dropped off my truck yesterday to get 5.29 gears installed and pick it up tomorrow morning. So excited, can't wait to see what the buzz is all about!
