gear vendor

Anyone use one with these diesels. I had one on a 454 suburban in the 80's. It worked very well. I dont do any really heavy hauling with mine.

I've always wanted one of these to get the extra ratios, especially double OD for light cruising. I'm also curious about folks' experiences with it.

It only drops your crusiing rpm about 250 rpm. It all helps but you have to factor in the cost compared to the benefits. Where it shines is towing on hills....
