From the factory my 4.0 OHV was quick. (reg cab). And with 31s and 4.10 it was also quick. But now that I'm on 33's and 4.10s, forget it. I want a 4.3 ratio, a chip, and a locker as bad as I want some premium p*ssy.

Yeah they are pretty peppy in stock form for a truck.

Add some rubber to the mix and it sucks.

Ditto, My OHV with 3.73's and heavy toyo 33's...im pretty sure my grandma on a bicycle would beat me. Also it chugs the fuel. If the switch to 4.56's doesn't increase both I'm tempted to sell my truck haha
