daily driving I don't think you'd be satisfied with a gear change. that's just my opinion and something to think about. plus if you are 4wd then you have to change front and rear gears and I think a gear swap in a 2012 is a bit complicated and more expensive because of the carrier.
Thanks for the quick response! I see what you mean about maybe not being worth it now within the next 3 months I will be towing @ a 10ft enclosed trailer on a regular basis with tools so I'm trying to get ideas for the future on what might make that an easier job for my truck besides swapping a HEMI in it!
