Thanks for this. That's what I was hoping to hear - experiences from some folks who have done this. I'm not as concerned about gas mileage (although that would be nice
), but the gearing in the 370 is so low that today's highway speeds are simply too much for the engine revs. I hadn't thought about noise though. My rig's fairly quiet once I get up to about 45, but before that, all the fan and intake sucking can make me wonder
. I appreciate your sharing this.
