Thanks guys. Just one silly little question.. How can I tell what the truck already has? I have some 'specialized' tools available to me to determine some of the OBDII parameters if they are available and of any use? I will be back in town in a week's time so I could try and get some of that, like ISS and OSS with the engine rpm and road speed? I should be able to determine the final drive ratio from that? Of course if there is an easier way, like a stamp on the case! I am open to looking at that!! After the snow has cleared a little! Thanks in the meantime. Any other suggestions for better gas mileage?
