Xtremjeepn is on a distinguished road

I bought it as a wheel barrow and maybe a fun Expedition build truck.

Want to keep the ultimate functionality with it. (not going to run 37s on this one.....)

No overly concerned with the power. I tows fine like it is(had 10,500lbs behind it a few weeks ago) Already has headers, full dual exhaust, MSD wires, etc.....and honestly it's the least powerful thing I own. If I want to go fast I'll simply take one of the other vehicles.

Just don't want to do the swap and feel like I'm spinning too high on the highway all the time. Since I have not driven it that much I'm just not sure how an extra 400 rpm would feel at highway speed on the V10
