Q: have a 2011 toyota tacoma trd sport, needed to know if the ring and pinion that go into the rear end will also fit in the front end or is there a different set of gears for up there. Answer this question

A: Hi Waylon, For this G2 Toyota 8 Inch 4.88 Ratio Ring and Pinion it will not work in the front differential. The front and rear diffs are different sizes and require different ring and pinions, but need to be the same gear ratio, otherwise your transfer case will be damaged if used in 4WD. If you contact our customer service center @ 877-474-4821 they can go over what ring and pinions you would need and what options are available

Q: I have a 5-speed manual 4x4 1987 toyota 4runner 22-re. I do light to moderate off-roading and the truck is also my daily commuter. About a year ago I put 31x10.50 tires on, and also thinking of moving up to 33's. It isn't exactly lacking power, but I wanted to add a little more strength to make sure I'm not stressing the differential or be losing power. It has the stock 4.11 ratio ring and pinion in it now. My question is: Should I go with the 4.56 ratio ring and pinion, or should I go with the 4.88 ratio ring and pinion? I'm also concerned about highway speed because it already does not like to get much past 65mph before its at max rpm. I'm afraid if I put the 4.88 ratio on it won't get past 50mph on the highway! Answer this question

A: Hello There is no way you are at max rpm at 65 mph with 410's and 31 inch tall tires. At 65 in 4th gear you would be only running 2900 rpm's. You put it into 5th you will loose another 18 percent off of the 2900. How fast did it go with the stock tires? It would do 75 80 with ease so with bigger tires the rpm's will be lower. The 22re makes peak horsepower at 4500 rpm's. With the 33's we run the 488's all the time the 4runners with 31's from the factory with auto trans have 488's stock.

Q: I have a 2013 tacoma per runner 4x2 that you guys put on a 6 inch procomp lift with 35x12.5x17 tires. I have stock gears on automatic transmission. What gear ratio would you suggest to install for better performance and fuel economy? I have the 6 cylinder motor. I'll have you do the installation and also wondering what price range am I looking at? Answer this question

A: Hello Chris With the 35's we would recommend the 488's for your truck. It will get the bottom end power back and the fuel economy back. We are just techs don't have any pricing. Thanks
