I do plan o eventually swap the 3.07 out for a 3.73 or 3.90. Likely the 3.73 so i don't completely kill highway mileage

My Ram with 3.92s and 8 speed gets better mileage than my WK2 with 3.55s and 6 speed. My commute to work is 17 miles on low traffic surface roads. I'm getting 22 - 23 mpg in the Ram. My GC on the same commute would get 18 mpg.

On the freeway at 75 mph I'm getting 22 mpg in the Ram versus 20 in the GC.

The ram has more hp/to due to a different intake Mani and heads. It's also an 8 speed and gearing. The 8 speed is a huge difference.

Thanks for the clarification Scott. Seen the pics of Max on fb, he looks happy. Good to see the recovery is going well for him!
