I doubt the 3.0 comes with anything but the 9.75, but be sure to ask dealer!Wow, good to know!
How the heck does someone ensure that he would get the 9.75, then? They are both fine, but if a person expected one versus the other it would be unfortunate to be surprised/disappointed on delivery day.
Get 3.55 hand down, no questions asked. I wish I did. I dont tow, but I want it sometimes on the freeway.Hello,
Slightly hijacking this thread I suppose, but it is a similar topic.
I'm trying to decide on a gear ratio, and since I won't be able to test drive each under various conditions (towing, highway cruising, etc.) I am wondering if there is a consensus on which one is best. The most I will pull is 7500 lbs. and I am fine with locking out 10th or 9th if I need to, or if the transmission moves around a bit under that kind of a load, however, when not pulling I would prefer the truck hold in 10th as much as possible on the highway. I rarely go faster than 70, but don't want to have the engine at faster than needed on the highway, either.
Basically would either ratio serve me fine, or if I were to err to one side or the other, which one should it be?
I am leaning towards the 3.55 but I am coming from V8s where the revs were more beneficial.
I have 3.31s and 35s and yes it does, even did it before I put bigger tires on. Its really not a big deal it down shifts as its still locked in OD, but its more the fact you are loosing speed to other drivers and have to give it a little pedal to kick down and go.Thanks,
Are you saying that at highway speeds the transmission will shift down to 9th on inclines etc.? I am assuming (but don't know) that first is plenty low, especially for this motor, when starting from a stop, towing or not. But, again, no firsthand experience.
