    Is there anyone with an auto/V6 on 265/75's with the 5.29's? I am on the fence between that and 4.88, but am on 32's and don't plan on going bigger. My taco was working way too hard pulling hills in VT on our last week long trip. We are roughly GVWR with all of our gear. It was shifting all over the place to the point where I was worried about burning the trans up and locked it into 4th at 60mph. It was going between 4/5/TC lock and not spending more than 2 seconds in any of them.

    Here's what I'll be using depending on where how hot the climate is:

    I probably will run Amsoil 75W-110 in both or 110 in back 90 in front. I could be convinced to go 75W-140 rear and 75W-110 in the front. TBD.

    I did get an opening to move my install up. To Dec 12-13. Man......worse than waiting for OVT 2.0.

    Valvoline synthetic 75w90 in the front diff and transfer case, 75w140 in the rear for me. There’s more oil info in the 4.88 thread if you’re interested in reading more.

    Yukon vs Nitro gears? Yukon is about $150 cheaper.

    Got my appointment booked for the regear. Hopefully in 3 weeks time I'll be running these puny stock tires with 5.29's :D

    Haha yeah. From talking to the few people on here that have ran 5.29's on stock tires and being provided a video of a truck regeared with 5.29's on stock tires doing 70mph at ~2400RPM by the company doing my install I'm fairly confident it will do fine.

    Worst case scenario it's horrible and I now have a new excuse to tell my wife I need 35's sooner...

    Will try to avoid the interstates as we don't need to be in a hurry. I’m thinking our route will be about 150,000 miles made up of 25% decent pavement, 10% pavement with huge potholes, 45% washboardy graveled roads, 20% deep sandy/very muddy tracks. Something to keep in mind with the stock tires (265/70/17) the engine was at 2500 rpm at 75 mph, now with 275/70/17 I'm doing 2500 rpm at 60 mph. If I was running less weight or had a part time camper I'd use 4.88s. Interesting to see what others think. On the nearly flat interstate at 60 mph I got 14.7 MPG

    You know 255/85r16s (33s) will fit with no cutting or suspension upgrade

    :thumbsup: Ideally I'd like to swap someone my rims and tires for 275/75-85/16 with the same KO2. I'd really like a taller sidewall and don't need 17" they will be harder to find than 16". Running 7,000 lbs not sure I want 255 though, I have balance the sands of the Sahara with Cameroon's deep mud all within 10,000 miles. I am amazed though how well skinny tires can work well in the sand
