We all know nothing will ever be as good as the 7.3. It is a legend!

Gassers don't know greatness.

And they drink wine coolers instead of beer.

Hmph. I've never heard of 12-year-old single malt being called "wine coolers".

I only drink when I’m working on my truck. I use to be an alcoholic, but since I started driving a gasser, I’ve been sober for years.

Even though I own and daily drive a diesel, this is pretty damn funny

You can't afford to drink with that fuel bill of yours.

No kidding there. But find me another gas powered 3/4 ton truck on 37’s that easily manages double digits with a 9 mile daily trip with 9 red lights one way.

I had to drink when I had a diesel, just to numb the pain of the expense.

I imagine with the 4.88 gears, not a lot of throttle is necessary to get the truck moving. Do the gears pretty much make up for the high revving nature of the gasser even with 37s?

It moves out of its on way. It tows in 5th and 6th just as good as 245/75r17 and 3.73’s did. But 4th is much stouter. It’s geared very close to my dads stock 245/75r17 truck with factory 4.30’s, which is the lowest 250/350 gearing combo you can get. There is a 0-60 video in my build thread.

I loved my 7.3 and love my current 6.0. But after this, I am going back to gassers. I have zero need for the diesel other than I like to party
