    It'd be interesting to see what your gas mileage goes to. Any idea on the 6th ratio?

    Gas mileage... with 37" tires, what's that? :D I expect a mile or two better, maybe more in the woods as the torque converter won't be sucking up all that power in the lower gears. 6th gear is .85... pretty good for the 4.88 37" tire combo.

    Wow, .85 isn't all that much of a gas mileage gear. It is slightly better than the .77 4th of the stock auto I guess..

    Having all those gears sure would be nice. :D I'm not sure I could give up my auto though. :princess:

    So, if someone wouldn't mind, would that pic be a good canidate to point to where the rear main seal is located?

    Sure it would.... right in the very middle of all that good stuff. Pull the transmission off the engine and there it shall be.
