Our trucks have 6 forward gears but do not use the 6th gear(2nd Prime) unless it is in Tow/Haul or Manual shift mode. I wouldn't shift manually unless you have a tuner that will allow you to change the shift points to a higher RPM. Tow/Haul On = 1, 2, 2prime, 3, 4 Tow/Haul off = 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. You only need the first 3 gears for a 1/4 mile run. If I am mistaken someone please correct me. Thanks.
This is the exact response I was looking for when I posted this thread, thanks.
