    <font color="blue"> </font color> I may have asked this before but would 35"-36" tires on an 85 CUCV pickup be a problem for the 6.2 diesel motor RPMs and would a Banks turbo addition hurt the situation. I know the axles have 4:56 gears which are a good match for this size tire but don't want to loose any power on the engine by changing the RPMs too much. Also I want to use this truck in the mountains where long steep grades are the norm, would it still be able to pull itself and the poteintial load up these hills? Thanks for your help. Scott

    you should no problems, with power you'll actually still be limited on your top speed since there you have no over drive. there is a gear/rpm calculator here that you can look at. http://www.4lo.com/
