I have the wheel to wheel on my truck as well. They are a real plus, even with the truck lowered. Have fun showing off the Entry/Exit feature. My wife loves it.

I'd have to agree with H2Oman; I'm sure there is more gain in the "heavy" mode. I use the "light" setting for my 4,500 lb trailer. The owners manual (page 544) reflects light is the suggested...

Just returned from a 3,500 mile mostly-highway trip. My 2013 has a 6-speed with 3.92 rear and stock 20" tires. Cruising mostly at 75-80 mph I noticed the hemi was turning at about 2,000 - 2,100 rpm.
