    Should be easy into the eights, would be a guess? Be a great starting point, then the sky is the limit. A 13 speed ran in direct (11 th) with 2.64 gears would give a little better mileage , and pull tad better( in direct) . And have long legs when you want it. Work road speed to fall at 1400 rpm. Gear fast run slow. Most trans 3.55 in overdrive would equal 2.64 in direct. Where you run and cruising speed are big factors.

    Yeah, while everyone else plays catch up, Harrison has been putting out Cascadia gliders since last summer. They are also putting out Coronados based on the current model and no longer the 1st generation version. I saw completed Cascadias when I was at Harrison's last August.

    A 13 running 2.64? Well, I can state pretty good that I don't think I would try that, unless running on the light side all the time. I use an 18 with 2.64. I pull a lot of 45-46K loads in the box, on a lot of two lanes and some gravel. And there are times when splitting the bottom on a hard pull makes a difference. An 18 is going to have a deeper bottom than a 13 also for those really nasty hard take offs on softer ground or inclines. Very similar deep bottom as a direct 10 in 1st. If I was using a 13, I would opt for 3.08. Same in 12th as 11th in 2.64 or 13th in 3.55. Kinda like the old single OD 13's. It still would not be as parasitic as running 2OD. And you would still have the 2OD if you needed to "put a wiggle in it" and get down the road at a pretty good gallup. But, whatever floats your boat, then go with it.
