    Doesn't want to let it just go back to the dealer and they sell it for 270K+

    Will make a decent deal on it or i'll just buy it from him.

    So your point is to order new trucks for something that may happen?

    My point is to be cautious before spending a quarter of a million dollars on something that might not work in 6 months.

    My newest truck has 3.43's. It's great at 68+. Even does good on fuel at that speed.

    Below that, it lugs.

    3.55's are a good choice for 60ish cruising.

    I didn't make it this way. It is what it is.

    I see, so you have to be in the highest gear to cruise. Learn something useless every day

    His old truck was geared the same and he rarely ran over 65

    Well it says right on the build sheet the truck is built to run at 75.

    But I forgot fuel means nothing to the esteemed.

    Personally I think if they do impose such a regulation to limit speed, then they can pay to change everyone's gear ratios. But that wouldn't happen overnight.
