That's the great thing about the truspeed. It will adjust for any tire/gear combo.

Yeah, I second that. The old econo tune sucked as far as power, but the new eco tune is great. It feels like it's at least 70 HP or so, and now that I got my truck fixed (no thanks to the idiot Ford techs at my local dealer), I'm seeing over 20 MPG on the road.

4.88s or 5.13s are too much gear for a 38" tire. I have 5.13s in a 550 and it shifts into O/D at 42 mph at WOT. It will only do about 68 mph. The 38" tire isn't that much bigger to make a big difference in those speeds. You would probably max out at 80 mph or less. The 4.56 gears would mach up perfectly with 38" tires.
