    I currently have that tire size and armored front to back. Bed rack and RTT. Lots of added weight. I currently am running the 4.88’s. They are great. If they would’ve had the 5.29’s at the time, I likely would’ve went with them.

    Right on. I go back and forth between 4.88 and 5.29 a lot. Seems most share your opinion that they would’ve gone 5.29 given the choice. I’m not planning on adding much weight so I’m mixed between the two because of the amount of freeway driving I do. I’m still leaning toward 5.29 because I do tow a 3600lb trailer from time to time.

    Rogue sent me the wrong crush sleeve for the front. Kit was open when I got it. Wasn’t too bad though. About three after work days. I’ll finish up tomorrow hopefully if I can get the right crush sleeve.

    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.

    A bunch a cool stickers, a bada ass MetalMiller Tx Longhorns grill emblem painted Hemi Orange, JBA long tube headers with o2 sims, Diff breather mod, Red LED interior lights, Fancy head unit that plays ipod n movies, Also DIY install factory stuff like, factory cruise control, factory intermittent wipers, OME nitro struts with 886x springs and toy tec top plate, JBA high caster UCA's for better alignmnet and dey beefier too, Old Man Emu Dakar leaf springs in da rear with the gear, U bolt flipper, Ivan Stewart TRD rims with 33" K Bro 2's, some bad ass weather tech floor liners so I don't muck up my interior, an ATO shackle flipper for mo travel in da rear wit the gear, also super shiny Fox 2.0 shocks back there too, all sorts of steal armor for bouncing off of the rocks like demello sliders, AP front skid, trans skid, n transfer skid, demello gas tank skid, and a tough as nails ARB bumper with warn 8k winch, I'm sure there's more
    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.
