Ron,
Howdy Ron,

I like this final drive ratio, easy to get the rig moving from a stop, plenty of power to pass and it will run 70-80 mph all day long, when road and conditions permit I usually run 70-75 on the freeway. This seems to be the sweet spot for making time without burning excess gas, anything over a sustained 75 mph and it really sucks the gasoline.
