I currently have a 99 taco with 35/12.5 tires running 4.56 gears and want to upgrade to either 4.88 or 5.29's but want to know how each will affect highway cruising. Is anybody on here currently running 35's with either 4.88 or 5.29 gears that could tell me what RPM they are pulling at 80MPH? I am currently pulling 3000 RPM at 80MPH and still get 18MPG. I have a 5 speed manual and the 3.4 V6 motor.

Thank,
Chris

With 5.29 gears you would be shifting faster, also it would seem you would be needing maybe 6 gear on highway. Apologize if I don't know WTF I'm talking about.:D

It's a simple ratio so apply the percentage of change and you'll get your answers.

Are they teaching any math is schools these days or is it all diversity training and other useless bullshit like that?
