    Any increase would not pay down the cost to change the gears over and if it is 4WD, the gears in the front I believe would need to be changed as well. I assume that the fuel mileage is not good compared to how it was at an earlier time or it is not good compared to your expectations?

    It will cost you 2000 to change gears in the front and rear.
