    Many will say ditch the 700r4 , I won't . Take care of it and it will be fine . I actually perform well on the trails I have run , even with 3.08's and 33's ( 3.73 now ) . The lower first does make a difference , all other things being equal .

    have you made any mods to your 700r? or just stock?

    Was done before I bought it , truck had 88,000 on it , I have over 140,000 on it now .

    All I have done with it is drive it everyday , wheeled on it with no cooler for 3 years , wheel on it with a cooler and 33's for a year , leave it in OD all the time after the 3.73 gears added . And changed the oil 24,000 miles ago :D
