    Hey GregsSD,

    I came across your thread as I was researching re-gearing my truck. I also have a 2005 6.0 F350 SRW SB CC. I am having my truck re-geared with 4.30's. I too run 35 x 12.50 tires on 18" wheels. I also as well was towing a '05 Weekend Warrior FS26 which I recently traded in for a '16 Keystone Fuzion 325. When I towed my WW it also felt boggled down with no power. Shifts would be stuck in 2nd or 3rd gear when climbing grades which I hated. What has been your overall experience with 4.30's. I'm really interested to hear what it's like to tow with as well as daily drive. My truck is my daily driver but I don't speed. What are your RPM's at 65 mph? Are you able to maintain good speed and in a higher gear than 2nd or 3rd when climbing up say 6% grades? One last thing how long did you allow the "break in" period before you began towing? I'm re-gearing using Ford OEM gears. Dana's upfront and Sterling 10.5 in the rear.
    Thanks again.

    I did not have to use any load resistors, I changed my flasher out for an electronic one and that works perfect! I believe it is an EP-27 Electronic

    Hi I saw that you have installed the switchback LEDs on your truck. I just got mine in and want to install them but they don't give you any directions... What wire did you hook your resistor up to? I don't know if the lights are the same on the 6.0's or if you had to get a load resistor but please let me know.
    Thanks,
    Brad
