    Bill, nothing to complain about with the 3.73 gears. They will make highway cruising more pleasurable with better mileage. I would know as I have an '85 K30 with the same stuff you have but 4.10 gears instead. It rides on 35's and still gets me 5 mpg. /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif There have been times where I wished it had 3.73 gears so I can drive it for longer trips.

    We'll I wish it had 4:10 gears but you always can't get what you want when you pay little to nothing for a truck like this..... /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif This truck will be used on the farm.
