I know the gear topic has been done to death but i have yet to find a post with my specific truck. So hear goes.
I have a 2004, 1500, 4.7, 4X4, MANUALTRANSMISSION
. I have the 3.55 gears and my tires are the stock 265's and don't plan on changing the tire size.
My question is- Would changing to the 4.56 gears with the stock tire size be to much? Or should I go with the 4.10's. I am changing mostly for the sake of towing
. I don't race it and I am not a speed demon. I am mostly on a 55 MPH HWY. Towing about #6000. I noticed that most of the guys on here with 4.56's are running larger tires. Would my MPG
suffer that much with the manual trans?
Also. Would a tuner do much for me having the manual? I thought they mostly just changed shift points in the automatic trans.
Thanks in advance for any answers guys.
