Fronts a Dana 44, isn't it just stamped on the cover tags, Greasemonkey?

MonkeyEvil(whats with all the damn monkeys around here?) I had a 2000 Dodge ram, 2500HD 4x4 ext cab, long bed, camper special package.

5.9 liter with 4.10 gears. It got terrible mileage. The truck is just too big for that 5.9. 9-10 city, 12 hwy-13, 8 towing.

Funny, with 4.10 gears, I always felt that it was in between. In 3rd gear, 65 mph was running the engine too fast, and 4th gear was not enough power. I always thought that with the 3.54s, it'd have been OK to run the OD off and cruise in 3rd gear at 65 mpg.

I used to tow at 80mph, so that I had the engine in a good range. Towed better at 80 than a 65 in fourth gear.

I'd never waste my time with a 5.9 truck again.
