    @OffRoad, I understand that you want more power when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear and you are comparing your previous experience with Willys. My understanding is that Rocky is more heavier then Willys and you don't get the same power burst that you got in Willys.

    Regarding changing transmission, you may have to ask some mechanic in Shoba Bazar, whether a 5 speed transmission gear box will help you achieve the result. You may change the transmission, but what about the rear differential, will it sync with the new transmission?, and the bottom line is will you get that power burst, that you want.

    Let us know, what you find out.

    I dont see any reason why the top speed should drop. Being familiar with daihatsu design philosophy, I would say the top speed will increase. Daihatsu usually add the 5th gear to a 4 spd transmission. Even the 5th gear assemble is seperate in the gearbox. I will try and find some tech info on that.

    AOA Bro,

    As per my promise... Following is a snap from Rock workshop manual. Check the gear ratios. Please correct me if I'm wrong, but the ratios tell me that the top speed should increase.

    Brother,
    Thanx for the usefull info.Wht u think how much top speed will be improved by changing the gear.In 4fwd its top speed is 110Km/h & if I will push further may be it will touch 120Km/h but engine makes lots of noise & seems it badly needs 5th gear.But on 100Km/h its ok but Burning fuel badly.
    And can any body tell me the prices of Gear,seats,A/c unit complete 2nd hand (Kabli),Roof lugage rack etc..

    @offroad congrats for rocky. I had rocky fifteen years back, it was non turbo and the pick was awesome. yes it never went beyond 120kmph and asked for a fifth gear. the 5 forward idea is good but please get the diesel pump and turbo checked too.
    To all the extreme drivers, please come offroad like ME to keep others safe on the roads.
