Agreed. That is the single dislike about the TH350.
Joe, Here's another way to look at it. For all practical purposes, your current NP231 @ 2.71:1 is the same as a 3.0. So, do you like it, or wish for a lower gear at times. That will answer your question. I think it's pretty obvious that no one thinks you need to go to the 4:1 or lower.
