WARNING TO THOSE WITH 2.73's! It's MUCH easier to speed with lower gears. I normally can maintain 60-65 without even looking at my speedo. Because of the completely different feel of the lower gearing, I found myself inching up to 70-75 without even noticing.


I learned to use cruise on a regular basis.When not using it I find myself easily cruising along at 80 +.

If I'm not mistaken because of the sticker being faded, it reads the axle code as X5. Sound right?


Yep, X5 should be a 3.27 Trac Loc.

Ugh, so my axle code is X5 on an 03 and my mileage seems to be 16.8 whether I hammer it or baby it. So thoughts on gears?
