gears

looked up on marlin none of them say what the 1st gear is on the auto trans. they say on the 79-85 auto and manuals and second gen yotas, the only chart for the tacos only show the final crawl ratios with there crawl box.

my question was a real scenario on the trails, marlins site recommends anywhere from 70-100:1 crawl ratios i just wanted to see if anyone has gone lower than that and if any side affects to the trans or t-cases.. thanks mike

I'm at 110:1 and think it does just fine. Plenty slow for crawling. I've seen others at 200+ and it's Mike Ross slow (sorry Mike:)) Mines a 5 spd manual, Marlin with 2.23's, trucks re-geared to 4.88's . (assuming V6) Auto's 1st gear is 2.8 and 5 spds are 3.8: http://pressroom.toyota.com/mediakit/autoshow/2001rel/toyota/tacoma-s.html

226:1 is awesome (in a 5-speed). I don't know if it would be a good idea with an auto. If I were doing dual cases with an auto tranny I would keep 2.28:1 stock gears in the front case.

When mine is done it will be 111: 1 with Marlins front case at 2.28:1. Here is how the new Taco's break down in the 5 speed auto tranny with the 4.0 in the prerunner and 4x4.
1st= 3.52
2nd= 2.04
3rd=1.40
4th= 1.00
5th= 0.72
reverse= 3.22
standard diffs are 3.727
mine are 5.38
stock transfer case, high = 1.00:1 low = 2.57:1
Marlin case 2.28
all equals to a 111: 1 crawl ratio for an automatic. Actually it's 110.96676:1:D
