Make your Taco, Rock-o! Nitro Gear 4.88s for 2016+ Toyota Tacoma

2016 & Newer Toyota Tacoma 8.75″, 4.88 Ratio, Nitro Front & Rear Gear Package Kit

 Testimonial: If you have been driving your 2016 Tacoma with oversized tires, than you are probably disappointed with the new engine combo, but with proper gearing they are actually very nice. We recently fitted the first stet to the XOVERLAND.COM 2016 Tacoma, which is fully outfitted and includes an AT Overland Habitat (camper). Rachelle and Rhonda complained that the new truck was constantly shifting and burning through a ton of fuel, that it “just didn’t feel right.” Installing the new 4.88 ratio Nitro gears resulted in an immediate improvement in drive-ability and later a 3-4 mpg increase on their 10 hour drive home. You can see the video from the shop floor here at the Expedition Overland facebook page.
