What gears do you have now?

And what transmission?

Upgrading the ring and pinion in your rear end changes the whole gearing for your truck which is probably what your looking for.

What are the details of the truck?

Engine/Tranny/Rear End(8.8,7.5)/ Current Gear Ratio.

You should only have to change the gears in the rear end. Depending on what rear you have we may or may not be able to help you. It could be somthing different than in the United States since you have a truck they do not offer here. But we have many people here that are more than happy to help.

All I know is you have the 2.5 Turbo Diesel w/ Intercooler
