Gear Ratio Calc

4Lo.com :: Final Gear Ratio, Crawl Ratio, Tire Size Calculators

I'd assume you could do a little math and pin pt what gears your running.

I like to follow tanker semis too, they always have huge mudflaps so they don't throw rocks at my windscreen; once I find a good one that likes to go 70-75, I set the cruise and chill for 6 hours straight down I-40!
Another reason could be that a solid 1.5 hours of my travel time is almost all downhill curves and I get to coast.
Regardless, I still pull 22-24 even with a headwind and 4.10s.

I never follow vehicles. I'm always leader of the pack.

That's why I still get 22-24 with 4.10s and you don't.

I don't see a single chip here and I've been doin' it for 4 years solid!
Could be because I probably have 3-4 coats of sealant/wax layers. Arkansas sun is brutal on paint.
Good point anyways!
