I have 3.31 gears.. If I don't tac up high, I bog down at the bottom of the next gear up. I'm built for top end from a roll.

I've got a 3.0, with the 8.8 rearend, 4.10 gears, open differential. I've got 265/75/16's on there right now...

I usually shift around 2000-2500 rpms. If I'm getting on the highway, or need a little extra push for one reason or another, I'll shift around 3500. I don't think I've ever revved over 4000... I guess I drive like a wuss.

I go by ear.......but it's usually around 3K. Seems to be a good sound on the engine as it's not screaming.

20-40-60-80-OD .......but that's km/h
