    5.29 will pull better then anything else cause they're lower gears, making our RPMs higher where the power is. OVtune also mentioned that we should be using ECT when we pull as well to avoid constant downshifting which makes sense. I need to stop buying other stuff so I can get my 4.30s swapped out for the 5.29s in my garage. :annoyed:

    If it don't happen soon I'll probably just sell them to fund my crawler project. :anonymous:

    @JoeCOVA sorry if this seems lazy, but you seem to have a really good grip on the math/statistics, but I noticed a lot of it is for ATs going with 5.29s, is there any comparisons/ other posts that focus on the MTs? Since they have slightly different trans gearing? In other words would an MT with 4.88 be comparable to an AT with 5.29s?

    17 DCLB AT w/ 5.29's and 295/70r17's. Just came home from Texas Toyota Jamboree at Barnwell Mt.. The lower gears were a godsend when decending steep loose terrain. Just shift to S and 1st. then let the gears and motor walk you down, no brakes needed. Also much easier to traverse steep inclines and ledges without a ton of throttle input. Slow and controlled is far better than fast and on the edge of control.

    Texas Auto Gear in Magnolia TX did mine. They are just a bit north of Houston. Great job and a decent price.

    I'm curious to know about the labor too. Three quotes I've gotten in northern alabama to just swap the fully built 3rd member and clamshell have been $725, $750, and $800.

    There is a chart on post #2 that compares the final drive ratios between the MT and AT with the different ratios. Comparing those ratios will give you a good idea.

    Night and Day. I don't think it is talked about much simply because it's expected haha. Since the bulk use of our trucks is daily driving or primarily street driving the impacts on daily usage is the common question/concern.
