    You have 3.73 gears if you have a V6 and 4.10 if you have a 4 cylinder. Other than that, I can't help you.

    If you're worried about mpg? Then don't do it. You won't enjoy your truck if you can't afford the gas.
    My mpg is about 13mpg. But factor in the tire size and it comes to about 15mpg.

    No need to extend your dirve shaft.

    Man I used to have a 02 Ranger... I loved it, but had nothing to compare it to.

    It got totaled the day I paid it off because a bitch had to adjust her stereo and went through a red light... I guess it was still a great day cause it led me to check out Tacoma's and I must say I will never own a Ford again. :)

    It's like comparing a VW bug to a Bugatti

    Im not worried about the MPG unless it is like 8 or 9. I had a 92 toyota pickup with 3" lift and 33's and got around 13-15 so im not really worried about it. And if i cared about power i wouldnt have sold my 500hp dodge cummins. But i didnt know they had a 3.73 rear gear. Im not planning on Crawling with it i just was a mall cruiser that will turn a few heads. Whats best 6" lift for the money? What 35" tire will last longest?

    I agree with Toku, 35's should be no problem, i have 33's and a 6 speed and still have way more than enough power, no need to regear. 35's should be no problem, just do it you'll love it.

    As with Jhodge, I'm running 35" mud terrain's on a 3" lift. I get 16.6 avg mpgs and thats all my driving included- even the 12mpg trail crawling tanks, and the 14mpg towing tanks.
    On the highway I can still top 19mpg's if I try and in the city I see around 15-16mpg average. On my current tank i'm sitting at 17.5mpgs and that is with driving from 2000ft elevation climbing to about 6500ft on curvy mountain highways, then down to around 3000ft, back up to 6500ft, and then down to 4200ft. SO, if it were flat terrain, 18mpgs is no problem for my truck with the V6 and 6speed. All my driving on this tank has been pretty hard on the skinny pedal, around 65-70 on the highway, and railing the curvy mountain roads too.
    I'll eventually regrear to some factory 4cyl 4.10's, or some 4.56's, but I'm not in that big of a hurry. I've still got plenty of power to pass, climb, and anything else.

    I have a friend with 2008 prerunner with procomp 6" lift the only thing i do not like about it is that it looks like the rear is sagging. He also has 35's and they only rub when turning up hill. I have been looking at the Tuff Country lift it seems to be the cheapest, it is around 1200$ but, since your getting the stage two lift are you wanting to sell your stage one procomp?

    i am pretty sure that the only difference between a stage one and stage two are the shocks in the front. stage one has the trucks stock shocks (i think) and the stage two has the mx-2.75 coilovers and mx-6... correct me if i am wrong though. not a 100% sure on this one
