    My gears have shipped from ECGS Friday. I’m going with 5.29’s I have 285/75/16’s on my non lifted TRD Pro

    I drove it 400+ miles yesterday and I got 16.3 miles an hour on cruise control while I painfully watched my truck hunt for gears all day. I videoed the drive and the 3 hours of off roading. I plan on making the same trip after I swap out the Diffs, to post a before and after

    I’m excited to see how it works out for you as this is my planned tire as well. How much extra weight you got on your truck? Did you add any locker to your diffs from ECGS?

    Like many have stated, the 5.29’s have totally changed the drive of my truck. It is no longer searching for gears and holds speed consistently. Currently on 285/75/16’s with bed & roof rack and Decked box. Soon to be bumpers and winch. I am happy with the decision and now enjoy the ride much more. Thanks to everyone who have contributed to this thread. You helped make my decision that much easier to upgrade to 5.29’s. Cheers!

    Over a thousand miles since upgrading and the MPGs stayed nearly even at almost 17. It could probably do better if I was a little kinder.
