Even more surprising that it's staying in 4th gear with 3.92's.... 6000lb is a heavy load but on flat land at 70 you should be in 5th. I even took tow/haul off part of the time on long flat straights when I towed the 4000 lbs with my 4.7L with 3.55s at 70mph. Granted I have it tuned so shift schedules and all that are not stock, but still. It did go in to 6th gear on those long flats and was fine. Any incline at all and it'd downshift to 4th for a second then upshift to 5th. Steep hills once we got in to the mountains I spent a lot of time in 2nd, 3rd, and 4th. Crawling up the mountains certainly was fun with a trailer on twisty roads where the lane isn't as wide as the truck lol.
