    Drop down to 4.10s and let it eat. Diesels are over rated....prove me wrong (flame suit engaged)

    @BigClay I'm not sure where you sweet spot is on that truck but I'd assume good cruising at 2400-2600 Rpms? and good hill killing power above that? Personally I'd be looking at 4.30 or 4.56, the deciding factor would be you feel the truck likes to be at rev wise.

    You must have not seen us rolling in convoy, plus it's dangerous not being able to maintain the the speed limit or keep up up with the flow of traffic.
