5.4L F350 1/4 mile times

I wanted to share a comparison test I did on my trucks acceleration with stock tires vs 35x12.50. Stock was 275-70-18. My truck right now with me in it was weighed at the dump a few days ago at about 6850#

0-60 times stock


1/4 mile stock


0-60 with 35s


1/4 mile with 35s

How was your gas mileage after doing the gears. I know rpms will be higher but my thought is that I could be in a higher gear longer resulting in similar mpg

I really didn't notice much difference in mileage, most people say it will go down a little empty and up a little when towing. I love how now it will hold overdrive on hills where it used to downshift all the time..

Thats exactly what I'm hoping for. The smallest grade change calls for a shift.

I guess time will yell. I'm just starting to save for the gears and front and rear electronic lockers. I snow plow a lot so I figured Tue gears will help make it easier and the lockers will be there for those situations that the limited slip didnt feel like working
