Larger tires often lead to a loss in performance, fuel efficiency, and constant transmission gear "hunting" due to a shift in the engine's optimal RPM range. The Nitro Gear Package Kit addresses this issue by allowing you to re-gear the differentials in your 2016-2022 Toyota Tacoma, bringing it back into its optimal operating RPM range. This not only improves performance but also reduces strain on your vehicle's drivetrain, especially crucial for modern vehicles with tall factory gearing and overdrive transmissions. 

It’s a common misconception that gear changes are reserved only for hardcore off-roaders or trucks with huge tires. However, re-gearing is one of the single most beneficial modifications you can make to keep the performance, economy, and durability of your daily-driven 4x4. This is a mod for anyone with larger tires, increased weight, or increased performance on stock vehicles for towing or increased acceleration. The gear ratios of 4.88 or 5.29 are specifically tailored to accommodate different tire sizes, ensuring optimal RPM at various speeds.

The Nitro Gear & Axle experts have simplified the gear change process by introducing industry-first "Gear Packages" – one part number, one price, one click away. Ensure a smooth installation by using 80W-140 gear oil (6 quarts required) and experience the transformative benefits of Nitro Gear & Axles Gear Package Kit on your Toyota Tacoma. This kit is designed to be used with automatic trims that come equipped with a factory E-Locker and manual transmission trims with/without the OEM locker.
