BigMike from Marlin Crawler put our new 3rd gen Tacoma 5.29:1 Nitro Gear Package to the ultimate test by hauling 5-tons behind his 2016 Tacoma. What’s even more impressive is he did so using 40″ tires & 2WD Low Range, placing 100% of the load on only our rear end gear set. When you undergo difficult and unexpected yard work, such as hauling this 10,320-pounds behind your Marlin Crawler Triple Transfer Case-equipped 3rd gen Tacoma on 40″ tires, you’ll be happy to know our 5.29:1 Tacoma Ring & Pinion Gears have the premium strength to back it up!!
Check out his build thread from reply #958 for the full story:
“I didn’t expect to be this grossly overloaded nor to have to drive so far. This is why I said I’m not particularly proud of this accomplishment but it was a cool experience nonetheless. I used one of my two Marlin Crawler Low Range Units for a 2.28:1 Low Range and kept the t/case in 2WD High, for a result of 2WD Low Range (which isn’t possible with a stock vehicle) meaning the rear R&P did all the work”
Thank you Big Mike, of MarlinCrawler.com for the fantastic customer testimonial!! That is an incredible show of performance.
