The whole time while towing, it wouldn't come out of 4th gear. It got between 6 and 7 mpg with no wind to speak of. In my opinion it pulled horribly. Trailer and cargo might have weighed 4000 lbs. Love the truck but I am seriously contemplating replacing the gears to 3.73. Does anybody have any info on this situation or comments about gears? Would love to hear.
Either changing the gears or buying a diesel.
