Marlin has a bunch of charts on his website.hey just to trying find what the lowest gears or doubler gearing anyone has done on a sas taco with an auto trans to the stock t-case..also cant seem to find what the 1st gear ratio is on the auto trans.. thanks in advance
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.htmllooked 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
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.I'm at 110:1 and think it does just fine. Plenty slow for crawling.

I'm not sure what the 1st gear is in the 04. I'll check a little today.hey thanks do you know if thats the same 1st geat for an 04 thats what i was thinking a stock front case and 5.38's thanks for the input.also your 05 is sickkkkk.. hopefully my shit will get done soon.. im just in a debate wether i keep my 85 4runner or sell it and build the taco?? what you guys think.. also i like to wheel the crap out of my trucks especially when the hammers are so close... but the catch is i owe 30k on the taco and nothing on the runner.. any inputs id apreciated.thanks
