    well got my truck back from sierra offroad on saturday. let me tell you it is low geared now them 5:13's might be to low but to late now /forums/images/icons/crazy.gif at 55 it is tacking 3300 rpm. guess its a good thing my eng. is not stock. stacy has already ordered my adapter for a 700r to 205 so hope fully the over drive will help. and the lower 1st gear will be good.

    <font color="green"> Yikes, that's low for 35s! I got 5.13s for my 38s and I'm worried about it not going fast enough to be safe on the highway. Can't imagine it with 35s. Must get up and move from a standstill though!</font color>

    a friend of mine used to have a demon that was geared for the eighth mile. holy crap, that thing would pull outta the gate.
    sounds like what you have now.
    the 700R will definitely help, though. couldn't you also just drop a NP241 with the new tranny?
