Ok thanks fellas. i just like to go when i travel and am afraid to run it at 80mph. so 3.55s or 37s. the should yield about the same result. the truck would look alot better on 37s. whats ya'lls opinion on towing. i very rarely pull more than 10k lbs. i run 37" iroks on my 07 and it pulled fine. i am planing on swamps 1.5s and custom chip hopfully not to much longer because i need to change my head gaskets and wiring and have 2 injectrs going.

well, now our 3.55 idi zf5 is around 2100 at 70. so not likely with 3.55s at 80mph.
