better than your with 33's

i think toyota 1st gear is 3.96... or something like that ....... times that by 2.28(t case gears) and 4:10
3.96X2.28X4:10= 37. ......... thats assuming im right with the 1st gear ratio.... im to lazy to look it up

ok that does suck then

probably someware around 45 -1. Ive got dual cases with stock gears,5.29s in the axels,and 35s wich gives me around 110-1.

it has nothing to do with 4 or 6 cyl engine..... or what size tires.

except that v6 & 4cyl have different tranny 1st gear ratios, but the difference is very little. I'm pretty sure they both have 2.28 in the t-case

and even though tire size is not used when calculating the crawl ratio........ it makes a big difference when out on the trail......... 2 trucks... one with 40's and one with 35's and same crawl ratio.......in most cases the truck with 35's will be more enjoyable to wheel........ except for the fact it doesnt have 40's on it

Most toy 4x4 trannys are around (1st gear) 3.8-3.9:1
The Turbo tranny is 4.313:1 1st gear
Bone stock trucks are generally around mid 30:1
In a Toyota:
For a 4cyl truck if you do serious crawling you want to aim approx 260:1
For a V6 truck aim 180-220ish:1
For a V8 aim 160:1
These ratios will give you a good offroad experience. And are ment more as a baseline for ROCK CRAWLERS.

260:1 is way more than you would ever need in my opinion. Even 200:1 on the low side
10-12-2006, 11:49 PM
260:1 how shit low, i would want around 120-150:1
10-12-2006, 11:53 PM
120 is plenty for around here because we don't have the traction to take advantage of any lower gearing.
but somewhere like moab 150-200 is ideal IMO

anyone that has driven these 3 different drivetrains would agree. And lets not forget, this is turning 37+ inch rubber (which I forgot to mention)
