Nobody ever wants to give credit to the lowly rear.
The gear ratio went from 3.09 to 3.45.
Not to discount the new transmission, but it is a team effort.
The rear allows for the higher towing capacity as it is constant allowing the vehicle to show more muscle at higher speeds where the tranny would make less of a difference.
