but that can only do so much... you're better off just buying another truck with the 4.0.. i mean dont get me wrong, i know of some people like Cody (07Sport) that really likes his 3.0.. so i guess its just preference. for me, 145 horsepower isnt enough.. for the stuff i wanted to do to it, it would be pointless.. so thats why i got the ram.
Or is it just the gay 3.0L? I have a stickshift 3.73 gearing extended cab on 31's, and its so slow on the freeway. I have to stay in 4th to get to 85, and when i put it in 5th itll like lose speed, or barely hold what its at. Could there be somethin wrong or is it just supposed to be so dang slow? Ive had mud in my intake and stuff before, could that mess it up? I need to seriously make this thing faster, its dangeriously slow i think.
You run a 31 inch tall truck tire.. Its not going to be fast. Not what its built for.
I was pulling my boat this past weekend. I have no problem getting it off the ramps, but going down the highway id have to down shift to fourth it wouldnt stay up when in fifth and it wouldnt pull over 70 mph. I like the truck i dont want it to go super fast but i would like it to keep at 70 on the highway when im pulling, I was just curious is it the 3.0. is that the reason it cant keep it going in fifth, because it doesnt have the Horsepower???
