what RPM 's are you guys doing on the highway?

I feel like my truck might be geared lower. At 70 mph I'm pulling aboyut 2100-2200 rpms, but it feels like i should be at about 1800 for that speed.

its auto, stock tires, but i think when i go up to 33's it might help a little.

is it me or does it just feel like if there was an extra overdrive, the truck would just idle at 80.

but it sounds like I have the 3:73's as well
