I run 32's and 3.73 gears. Oddly enough i love it in town, fits my slow gas saving driving style very well. But on the highway where I live, its pretty bad. I have big hills and all it wants to do is down-shift and run @3000 rpm+. I have to play with the peddle to keep it from down shifting, use overdrive on/off to fool the truck into downshifting, get "running starts" on the big hills for the inevitable decline in speed if I can manage to keep it in gear, etc. I do get 19+ mpg though, which is awesome.
