    What does the stall speed on the torque converter do? What speed would be the best for a daily driver?

    The stall is what lets the truck keep running at a stop with it in gear. The best stall really just depends on how radical you cam and motor are. If its stock then leave it stock. As for my firebird I had a 2500 stall in it, but blew it up, so I am going to a 3500 stall. Your stal is supose to be about 500 rpms below your peak torque on a race car, not really sure about an off-road vehicle, I have always left the stock ones in it.
