    Trying to calculate rpm with 5.29 on AT at 55mph in 4th and 5th gear and 33” tire.

    My math comes to 2045 RPM for 33” in 5th gear and 2965 RPM in 4th gear at 55mph. This seem correct?

    Right on Joe. I wonder how it’ll pull my trailer in 5th at this rpm down the highway.
    Awesome, thank you Joe, I guess I'll have some things to consider, right now I tow at 55 in 4th gear on a Stock SR5 with stock tires at right around 2400~2500rpm down the freeway. 2045 seems a bit low to have power to pull down the freeway but I could be wrong and then at 3k a bit high. perhaps I'll have to consider towing a bit faster or slower at cruise speeds. Anyone that tows a travel trailer care to chime in what gear they cruise in? mines right around 3800lbs maxed out.

    I have a stupid question. Does the master kit include new seals? I have some weeping around my diff and would like to get that taken care of when the new gears go in.

    Most folks talking about 3.5 autos, but what about a 3rd gen 2.7 5spd?

    Is it safe to say with the added weight of the truck alone compared to 1st/2nd gens for the little 2.7 would definitely need 5.29s for 35s? I know Diablo (with his Brocoma) had stock gears, yikes, but then went 4.88. Curious what the consensus is given the stock 3.92 gearing.

    My math puts me at 2750 @ 70mph (33s + 4.88) while ~2900 @ 70mph (35s + 5.29). Considering right now I get better mileage at 2900-3000rpm in 4th compared to 2300 in 5th when on the freeway with a semi hilly commute (wayyyy less throttle needed), I’m not opposed to running 3k on the freeway knowing that motor is probably happier in its usable powerband.

    all hypothetical IF I went 35s.


    I just can’t jusify spending thousands on suspension, regear, wheels, tires, etc just for 285s. If I’m going to lift and go through all the cutting to properly stuff bigger meats, it’s going to be 315s. Otherwise she’s staying stock or maybe skinny 33s thanks to being able to stuff them on a stock rig.

    Master kits do come with seals, however they dont put the highest quality seals in the pack which is very unfortunate that you pay so much for that master kit. I recomend to have OEM toyota seals as they are good insurance that you wont have leaks. Now @ECGS needs to start producing solid pinion collars for the toyota 8.75 rear to really protect your investment.

    Anyone have any recommendations for quality gear installation in San Diego or SoCal area?

    Upgrading to 285's soon and will probably just go straight to 5.29's.....screw it. Currently deployed and I have a ton of early christmas presents waiting for me (RTT, bedrack, prinsu, lightbar, etc) to install when I get back.

    Confirm 5.29 is not overkill for 285s, do not plan to put on steel bumpers, but possibly skid plates and sliders. Thanks!

    5.29 is never overkill! Over kill is paying for 4.88 then paying again for 5.29! That’s all I got can’t recommend a socal shop!

    Concur! Thanks, considering all the Tacomas running around San Diego, surely someone has a recommendation.

    Anyone running 5.29’s on the smaller sr5 8” rear diff? Has it held up well? I’m looking into this with a harrop e locker.

    nitro gears full 5.29 kit wouldn’t provide good enough seals??? or are you referring to another brands kit?

    I've heard San Diego Gear & Axle know their stuff and do quality work.
    I had 'The Differential and Axle Shop' in Escondido regear my E-350 Van. Very professional, easy to work with, very happy with the service provided. They do lots of Toyotas.

    For those that paid a shop for parts and labor and don't mind me asking, what was the cost out the door?

    So far I've talked to 2 shops about 5.29s and a front ARB. One quoted me $3600 and the other $3900.
