    I've got a 1996 Tacoma 4x4 Xtra cab, with auto transmission.

    Wondering what gearing I've got in it now, as RPM's are lower than I want them to be...

    On the highway, I turn about an even 2000 rpm (maybe slightly less) at 60mph with 31x10.50x15's on it...

    I'm thinking of going to 33's (I've got a decent lift and bushwacker cut-out flares, so should fit...) but thinking of re-gearing when I do, because I don't want to be running as low rpm's as I do now in certain situations...

    comments? Thanks!

    You should have a Gear Code on the sticker in the Door jamb. It will be a 4 digit code, i.e., B04A, or the like. Find it and post it up.

    Or, post a pic of the door sticker, and we can get it ourselves. :)

    Hey thanks Chris, I didn't know gearing was there.

    I'll look at it tomorrow, as I'm in the house for the night... and it's dark, cold and I'm lazy...

    Thanks!

    here's the "decoder" for the gear code found on the door jamb sticker

    THIS IS FOR 1st GENS ONLY!

    The axle code for your rig can be found on the manufacture's sticker located on the driver's side door jamb as follows:
    First digit:
    A = 7.5" ring gear
    B = 8" ring gear
    Next two digits:
    01 = 3:42
    02 = 3:58
    03 = 4:10
    04 = 4:56
    05 = 3:15
    06 = 3:91
    07 = 4.30
    Last digit:
    A = 2 Pinion, Open
    B = 4 Pinion, Open
    C = 2 Pinion OEM Limited Slip
