Im assuming most of you guys that are running the LT kits regeared. So im wondering how much it cost you guys out the door? And where is a good shop in SoCal to get it done? I have searched and found a range of anywhere between $1500-$2300, but i think thats for front and rear. My truck is 2wd prerunner so i would only have to regear the rear, right? Thanks in advance. I want to run the 285/75r16s by the way.

take the 3rd member into the gear shop and save a bunch o $ ;) They are very easy to remove/install.

parts will be around $300 or so for the R&P and install kit.
labor, if you take them the 3rd can run from $150 (shop up here in San Jose) to $500 depending on area.

X2 on bringing them the 3rd member...you'll save a bit on labor.

Yes, the prerunner doesn't have a front diff so you'll only need to regear the rear.

Go 4.56 and you will love it!

i've got stock 4.56 with 265/75/16, so you should probably re-gear if you want to run 285/75/16. once i get the money, i'm going to re-gear and go to 285/75

I say take your 3rd members in to save money. It usually costs from $150 -$250 for labor depending if you have the e-locker. I'm taking my DD 3rd in this Saturday.....and eventually, taking in the beater's 8.4". Purchase the r&p and master install kits from one of the TTORA sponsors.

How tough was it to remove the third from your truck? I'm thinking on regearing to 4.56 with 32's very soon.

thanks for the replies, good to know about the 3rd... im just debating if i want to do this, or just keep the stock gears and get 32s. 33s would look waaay better, but getting 32s would save me a lot of money. And, im not LT, so I feel like there really is no point in getting the 33s.

31's (10.50)
2.7 A - Minumum 4.10 or 4.56. A 4.30 if you could find 'em is near perfect.
2.7 M 3.4A - Minimum 4.10
3.4 M - 3.91 or 4.10

33's
2.7 A - 4.88
2.7 M 3.4A - 4.56 or 4.88
3.4 M - 4.10 or 4.56

35's
2.7 A - 5.29
2.7 M 3.4A - 4.88 or 5.29
3.4 M - 4.56 or 4.88

37's
2.7 A - Dont do it you'll hate yourself
2.7 M 3.4A - 5.29 (either could get away with 4.88)
3.4 M - 4.88 or 5.29

pretty close to what I came up with a while back ;)

but I still say don't even bother trying to go taller than 33s with a 2.7 AT...and use 5.29s for that combo just to get close to "stock" performance.

I got a set of 32's on my truck. Probably about 70% tread left i'll sell them to you for 400.

seriously, 5.29's with 33's? because i have the 2.7 right?
2.7 AT, yes. OE gearing for the 2.7ATs became 4.56 with factory 31" tires
(265/70/16) in '01 so I consider that the 'stock' ratio to go by...I know...earlier trucks got 4.10s with 31s but the factory tire size was 235.

so, to compensate for the tire size change you need to go up a notch in gear ratio. 4.88s will get you back to "stock" configuration with a 4.58:1 'adjusted' ratio but with the 2.7 but you really need to go lower to help compensate for the extra tire weight, rolling restance and aero drag. That's why I suggest 5.29s for 33s with that engine/tranny.

For comparison, there are a lot of 3.4 ATs out there running 4.88s with 33s and do very well both in power and gas mileage.
