Re: Proof that a NP208 will do 60mph FWD for 130miles
I'm on the hunt for 3.73s. Unless my 2.73s with their mangled teeth start making noise I'm going to run them until spring. I've got my Dad on the look for 4x4 1 ton GMs. Periodically there will be old 1 ton GM pickups in the area for $500. There are a pair of 3/4 ton 4x4s in the paper for $450 but I already have a 14FF with 3.73s and don't want to spend any more money this time of the year.
4.10s on 235s at 75mph is pretty noisey to say the least even with .75 overdrive. My snow tires are 235s so 4.10s would be pretty bad. If I didn't run little snow tires I'd have either 4.10s or 4.56s on the brain. Cooper Weathermasters are expensive enough at 235s.
I don't really want to run 8 lug wheels since I'll have to run wagon wheels or pay through the nose for nice wheels. Unless I find a Dana 60 I don't plan on running 8 lug.
It must be late. I'm rambling.
I looked at the forum but I couldn't find any within driving distance so that's why I bought that truck.
