First let me say it was my pleasure to meet Keith and Zach last night.
Great to get out for a change and meet some fellow gear heads lol.

I was honestly surprised at the outcome of the couple passes we made. I figured the 3:55/6spd would just pull away from me and leave me far behind. Couldn't have been more evenly matched IMHO.

Why dodge/ram has under rated the tow ability of the 3:21 geared 8spds ill never understand considering they pull just about dead nuts even to 1000' mark then the 3:55 inches forward, but only slightly.

It was AWESOME of Keith to help me out with this comparison of the two drive trains.
Anyone on the fence about buying a 8 spd and 3:21's will now know without a doubt what kind of performance they are buying
And how it stacks up against a 6 spd 3:55 geared truck. Both trucks were quad cab 4x4 2013 models, it just couldn't be any better for comparison IMO

The first run Keith tree'd me BAD LOL, my first run in 2 seasons..... That's my story and I'm sticking to it LOL
