      Nice to see a scientific approach to your comments about lugging to maintain speed and mpg. It really does make sense. My experience and concerns with the 1FZ have been based on engine heat since modifying my OEM temp gauge and I can see what is...

      I had this explained to me like a year ago and it changed how I drive the car completely and resulted in way better mpg. I wish I learned it a long time ago

      That is a very good evaluation or analysis! There are more factors involved. But it's never a decisive number!

      So I ran some simple math to see if lugging a lower final drive rpm is more efficient than sitting at a higher final drive rpm. While the math is sound this is hypothetical and represents what you might see in a controlled laboratory...

      They are doing my transfer case gears as we speak. I am on 35"s. Looking forward to see how much I like my new power and! If not then I can do differential gears as I go to 37" tires

      I don't care about MPG when driving the 80, my rig is 7k lbs (when loaded for week-long adventures off grid) it's lifted to the sky and has tires that weigh 100lbs each. What I do care about is driver fatigue on the interstate for 8+ hours when...

      I got 13.6 mpg, going 80 ,keeping it between 3k and 4K going from Utah to Montana. My 80 is 6300lbs in 35s with 4.88s. Riding it right where the it makes torque keeps your foot out of the gas and keeps the duty cycle lower on the injector

      Easy ..but how about your average gas mileage at 3000 rpm.?

      So putting a long though! I am doing Transfer Case gears. SUMO GEARS ready to be installed! Thoughts of going 37's in my next set of tires are looming in the not too distant horizon!

      That sounds miserable for any USA road trip. You're getting smoked by semi-trucks on the regular. The hwy NVH would wear anyone down. Toyota got it right with the stock gearing and tires. Quality AT/MT 37s and 4.88s is the sweet spot imho.

      I went with 4.88s with e lockers riding on 315's and I am very satisfied with the ride. I do occasionally pull a couple large 4wheelers on a 14' single axle and it does well. I doubt I will ever step up to 37's but if I do I think I still have a...

      I am running 35's with the 10% underdrive in the transfer case netting me basically 4.56's. It drives great all over Colorado until I hook up the trailer, then I want gears and forced induction:) The low-range underdrive is simply awesome too.

      I went with 4.88s since I'd done the same in my Jeep YJ on 35s (also an inline 6). Just as with the Jeep, going 4.88s was preferable for my driving preferences and location. That said, you're right on the shift points and speedo for anyone else...

      You should be fine. A friend of mine has 4.88 with 37s and it is heavy and it feels great driving his 80. My 80 with stock 4.10 and 315 (34.6) tires is always looking for gears and I am in the gas more to keep it up to speed. Depending on the...

      Do you at any time plan on doing the underdrive/overdrive gears in the transfer case? If you do I would recommend staying with the factory gears or if you are thinking about stepping up to 37s since they are the new 35. If you do the transfer...

      In case it helps some one else. This took me half a day in my tilted driveway, spare was already removed. I mostly followed the instructions, these are just some things I did that are 80 specific. Included parts supplied with the tank, front...

      Check out my build thread (link below). I have tried both the MetalTech Lancer and the Kaymar on my 2015. Both are shown on the build. I have been very impressed with the build quality of the Kaymar. The MetalTech bumper is stout, and I liked the...
