Re: Is it pointless?
nope, but you should extend it's breather line if you'll be in deep water at any point. that goes for all the breather lines on the truck too... it's very cheap insurance.

Thanks Muddy
a couple of my friends think that a new tourq converter will make a difference, will it?

Re: Is it pointless?
what kind of offroading? a higher stall will help you build HP faster for mud/sand use, but with 4.56 gears you should be ok in that department. i'd leave it as-is. (and i run 3.55 gears and 35" tires in the mud fine with stock everything, so...)
