Got the Dmax back from the shop today with the 4.56 gears. Has a whine now in both drive and coast. Setup looks OK, filled with Amsoil.

MPH is way off after a new tune, like 15mph (showing 85 for 70gps). It needs the 37s now, turning 2k at true 70mph.

Darn ABS and brake warning are on with the diff gears. Time for the lift to get on!

Hard to hear, but it is there.

...And

That thing is going to look so cool when lifted with the 37's

I think they are the correct sized tire for these larger rigs

I think I'll get 37's for the Burb when I wear my 35's out at some distant point.

But with a gasser and 4.88's I just may have to!

You may need 37s sooner than you think. Withs 35s and 4.88s that motor is going to be screaming at 70mph.

Yea, Tate and I looked at all that. Came out to shy of 2400 RPM at 70, so yes, it will be turning up, but hey its a LS, it likes revs.

Btw at a bit over 80 when the D-Max is singing at 2100+ it is running its best.

And that Tundra I had that I put a Dana 44 under the front end, had 4.88's and I drove it for years like that.

JR let me make sure I understand this correctly.

you paid a business to re-gear your truck for you.....that business put the new gears in but did it wrong.....that business is only going to cover the cost of labor, while you have to pay more money out of your pocket to buy the same equipment for that same incompetent individual to try again?

is this correct, or did I miss something completely while I was trying to unscrew myself?

JR, if what Nate is saying is true, that just isn't right no matter how you try to defend it. The shop should be making it right not charging you for on the job training. Not sure I would even be giving them another chance at it if you are having to pay to let them try again.

Going to stay for the next setup. Gears and labor are handled.
