Shift point help?

I have a manual tranny in my truck.

What shift points do you guys recommend? I usually shift somewhere between 1750rpms, and 2100rpms. I usually drive my truck pretty gently, compared to some other strokers that I know. I also know a guy that has a 6.0 in his truck. He shifts anywhere from 3500rpms to 4000rpms. I know the 6.0 can be wound up farther than my 7.3, but still.

Obviously, the shift points go up if I am accelerating in a hurry, or towing up a hill.

Thanks for the help.

I would shift my 6spd right around 2k rpms. If I were going up a hill or passing, I'd drag the rpms out. I got about 22mpg city with my truck.. 17-18mpg if I harped on it the whole tank. Keep in mind, I also am neck and neck with tractor trailers when I accelerate. I'm in no hurry. I had the SAME truck as you EXACTLY; I had 132k miles though.
