This website is the hobby-project of a USMC veteran/mechanic, @Tyler. I created Tacoma3G.com to share my knowledge of this subject with others and to provide like-minded folks with a comfortable space to ask questions and create 'build threads' within our Tacoma Forums.
where you get these prices at? I heard it was 800 for parts and 1300 for install..
Dam. Yeah thats not happening anytime soon lol- a serious cmc
- trimming fenders 2''
- beating pinch weld outwards so its flush.
- beating the firewall back.
- trimming/ removal of fender liners.
- ensure caster of uca to be 4*. you want as much clearance to be able to turn the wheel.
you have the suspension and the UCA'S ALREADY. find a reputable shop that will do your cmc and go buy a heat gun and a baby sledge hammer and go to town. and have a dremel ready for trimming. if you dont put in the work, you will never see the RESULTS!!!!!!Dam. Yeah thats not happening anytime soon lol
Very true but its a big step lol maybe down the line once i get a few more years (and miles) on my truckyou have the suspension and the UCA'S ALREADY. find a reputable shop that will do your cmc and go buy a heat gun and a baby sledge hammer and go to town. and have a dremel ready for trimming. if you dont put in the work, you will never see the RESULTS!!!!!!
so in total how much for the regear?You wont need a regear "right away" but you would eventually. We have actually found that these third generation Tacoma's "shift" easier when using a 35" tire. For whatever reason the load on the drivetrain seems to help the transmission find gears a lot better. That being said everything else is correct (and we still recommend re-gearing if you can)! We do our gears here at 1000.00 for installation and we use complete housings from ECGS. Our last install included an ARB air locker in the rear and we got the housings for 3300 from ECGS and gave our customer the 800.00 return core charge. If you do the gears yourself and install them properly it will save you a ton. wE do complete housings typically as the guys at ECGS are masters and in that realm you really do get what you paid for. There's nothing like being on the trail and losing your rear diff haha.
I used Martins mobile gear for my re-gear and added locker , done in 4 hours also! This guy knows his trade, great job no issue's at all ! Highly recommend him to everyone thinking about re-gearing!I paid around 1100 $ for nitro gear master sets. I paid 900$ for install which took 4 hours.
I was quoted from multiple places 1450$ for gears, and 1200-2000 for install and from 3-5 days they wanted my truck. I feel i got a decent deal. I used “martins mobile gears” in LA area. He has a shop in riverside i dropped it off at.
