    I'm not sure...I'm trying to learn everything that I can about gearing- So I was wondering what your thoughts on it were to throw the 4.56's in there.

    Good luck!!

    When I lifted the truck I lost some bottom end power and gained some top end; so I want my bottom end power plus when I am towing in high altitude the truck lags big time. They said if I regear I will get some bottom end power back and would help in higher altitudes. Downside to that I will loose top end power and my gas mileage will be affected right know I go 80mph and I am at 2300 rpms when I regear it will be higher how much higher I don't know.......

    Don't know I checked with SilverBACK 07 he's running the same gears and he said he lost 1-2 mpg and stated fuel light comes on about 210 or 215.

    open loop should only happen at 80% throttle...Not at a certain RPM....:confused:

    Well....Im betting thats definatly causeing poor mpg. It shouldnt be going into open loop until 80% throttle.....Only thing I can think of is the air filter. Can you swap in the OEM filter and see if it still does the same? Only reason Im wondering about this, is I get between 15 and 17 mpg towing my 3000# boat, and it stays in closed loop....even over 70 mph....:confused:

    You get that mpg hauling that boat. I get 13 or less hauling my 16' trailer with a shell of a car on it. WTF. On my drive to Galveston tomorrow I'll see what loop I am ending up with.
