    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!

    The transmission compensated for that as I mentioned in one of my earlier posts. It will shift sooner and lower than before but it won’t blow your socks off. When you get offroad and in hilly situations or high speed interstate travel you will see it the most.

    Since the first release and every updated. Running the 4.88 beta right now. Too much in my opinion but its starting to settle. Truck runs a lot better even with the stock tune and 5.29s. More like it should. Try flashing back once and you'll see what I mean if you remember the truck before the mods.

    i’m on 34s (KO2s) and on OV 1.05 running 87! i have noticed my mpg has gone up to heights it’s NEVER reached since my first mod to this truck which was 265s. i’m seeing 19mpg on my commute to work where i normally see 16 to 16.9mpg so with that alone i’m not mad!

    is it safe to assume most of you with gears and OV are running the 91 tune?

    Personally armored up and tuned 91 with 5.29 has was awesomeness minus revs and MPG!! Moved up to 35s and even with 5.29 & tune its kinda a crippled dog! Waiting for the 5.29 tune release! Either way 100x better than stock! I’d promote the tuning before the gears for the faint of heart!

    Thats what I do.

    So bare with me here. I couldnt figure out why for some 5.29s feel different. Everyone talks about the weight of their individual trucks, but no one really talks about the un sprung weight (not supported by suspension, just being turned by the axles) of their vehicles tires/ wheels.

    So i just did the math of your specific set up (wheel/tires) vs mine, and we both run the same psi. And taking that into account here is what i came up with.\

    Hancook MT3 -288 lbs for 4 tires (72lbs per)
    86.4lbs wheels- at (21.6)lbs per wheel
    PSI per tire-30psi

    = 374.4


    Cooper ST Maxx-276 lbs- per tire is 69lbs
    75.6- wheels- at 18.9lbs per wheel
    PSI per tire-30 psi

    = 351.6

    thats a 22.8 lb unsprung weight difference, which is huge. Which is probably why we have different but feelings from our trucks.

    Break in question:

    Had my gears in for 300ish miles now, likely to be around 450-475 by Saturday.

    I want to head up to the mountains for a 14er, its 128 miles one way.

    Should i do this? If so what precautions do i need to take? I will not have fresh gear oil by Saturday.
