Thanks for the additional information Rob. If you don't mind me asking what ratio rear-end do you have in your Ford? I like you will probably sit on 65mph as anything higher in my mind is too much.

Regards,

Wayne


The differential is a 3.73 limited slip (the truck is not 4WD). Wheels are 17" aluminum and tires are LT245/75R17E. Tach shows about 1,700 - 1,750 RPM at 65 MPH (per the Garmin GPS - the speedometer reads a couple of MPH fast).
