it has 3.42 gears now. i am thinking that switching to 4.10 gears might be worth it.

who on here tows with a half ton suburban? what gears do you have in it and how does it pull?
My K3500 crew has the same engine (TBI 5.7L right?), even with the 4:10 gears its no rocket with or without a load, I would actually consider keeping the 3:## gears and be able to tow in D rather than OD and hold a better speed/rpm. It might be a little more sluggish from a stop but let the fools around you deal with that, Im never in a hurry when I tow.

Subs always tow nice tho, nice long WB and even weight front to back. Order up a set of Timbrens from to keep the ass end level and tow away.
