Just throwing this out there lol. I thought my 4.88’s were overkill. Not my cup of tea but nonetheless a new option

I see 5.29s as a viable option for daily driven automatics with 34"+ tires. Highway RPMs would be a little too high for trucks with manual transmissions on the interstate, but not full retard. I'm still strongly considering them for mine though since regearing from 4.30 to 4.88 wouldn't be worth the time or expense.

5.29s would be great around town and a monster off-road with a 54:1 crawl ratio in 1st and the ability to bomb longer hill climbs at ~12 MPH in 2nd, locked... Should also really help keep the RPMs up to maintain speed on longer downhill stretches for less threshold braking.

For your viewing pleasure. I wouldn't suggest 5.29's if you still plan on daily driving your truck and want to be able to maintain highway speed.

Holy SHIT. How have I never seen this truck?!

Marlin has always had some cool stuff. This truck has been somewhat of an evolutions but cool to see what they've done with a truck that could in theory still be driven daily. In fact, I think they drove it to that Toyota Jamboree in Texas.

He did. Even got decent MPG on the drive out.

Watched @Maxx.Powell’s video when it came out and had been holding a lot of weight in my mind ever since.

Pretty sure I’ve made my decision to do this 5.29 regear + some type of front locker.

We have a 4.88 thread, but let’s discuss this new-ish 5.29 kit now.

Front locker yes. Love our ARB.

We actually did already have a thread on 5.29s, but one is none right? :ROFLMAO:

What oil are you 5.29 guys running?

I got Lucas 80w140 non-synthetic but I have seen a lot of mixed answers.
