    So Im brand new to the toyota world so bare with me haha. I have a 1990 Pickup with a 3.0 V6, its a 5spd manuel with a 5.5 lift and the guy I bought it from put 35s on it without re-gearing it lol. So driving on the highway isn't very pleasant, and it takes about a year and a half to get up to 60mph. Ive done some research and i think that i should switch to 5.29 gears but Im learning as i go and im not sure what all I need to do a complete swap front and rear. If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated thanks.

    Does anyone know where I can get a nice set of 5.29's and the install kit for my pickup? 8" rear and 7.5" front axle/IFS. I'd like to put a locker in the rear but Im afraid of breakin CVs if I lock the front so just the rear for now till I can do some more research. Thanks
