just stick with the 8 speed transmission

with the 3 different differential ratios
3.21 has the lowest torque, but gets the best MPG, at any given speed the RPM will be the lowest of the 3
3.55 has mid range torque, MPG is not quite as good
3.92 has the most torque, but you lose a bit more MPG

torque is needed for pulling power & quicker take offs
mmmmmmmmm.....most torque
