Cool. I was hoping to hear it was a significant difference. I know it's only been a day but do you feel like it was money well spent? Or do you want to wait until you get to pull your trailer before...

The only reason I have done the gears yet is part of me is concerned that I won't be happy with the 4.30's and waste a grand on the gear swap (2WD). I really don't want a diesel but I have no...
