    ...and I'm new to the club. Actually joined and started a thread earlier today (11/26) and got tied up 'til now. I have BLACK BOWTIE BLOOD: Black 2000 TAHOE LIMITED, Black 1987 K5 BLAZER (CHVYDUTY), Black 1987 CALLAWAY TWIN TURBO CORVETTE CONVERTIBLE (2TURBOS) with black Grand Sport wheels, and a future Black 1951 CHEVY STEPSIDE in the works. Just added a great big dash of salt to all these with a White 1991 CREW CAB 3+3 DUALLY (JERRYRIG)...that I would drive all the time if it didn't like gas SO much. It will be used to pull my Black 7 X 16 LEONARD ENCLOSED TRAILER with a Black with red flames 2004 FATBOY BLAZIN BONES EDITION (BLZN04). Only way I could afford to acquire these was to shop around, buy/sell right, and work on my own stuff as much as possible. I retired from the Air Force, work part time for LEONARD BUILDING AND TRUCK ACCESSORIES and do odd jobs, hauling, scrap recycling, etc. I live in North Carolina east of Raleigh...in Goldsboro. I really look forward to learning a lot and am slow to share unless I am sure about what I am talking about. Thanks for your welcome in advance.

    Thanks for the welcome Stephan. I see you have a 3500 truck. Mine is my newest "love" if you will. First "dually"...and never thought I would have one. Especially now with gas the way it is and how much this big block likes it. I would like to sip a few more MPGs out of it. Bought it from an original owner horse farmer. It has high gearing with a manual for towing and I don't need that much tug. Would like advise on a compatible over-drive and appropriate gearing. I will get pics around of my stuff eventually. Again, thanks for the greeting to an obviously tremendous site.

    Hey Jerry, If you're happy with your trans as it is, you might want to check out Gear Vendors overdrive units. It would be cheaper to re-gear the rear end but you said it is already "high" geared. I almost bought a gear vendors od, but ended up swapping out my turbo 400 3 speed automatic for a 700R4 with the overdrive for the mpg. The gear vendors will let you split gears "under" & "over" so you won't need to do anything to what you already have & still end up with a wide range. Big blocks respond to the same mpg mods as the small blocks but you will always be 2 or 3 mpg behind as far as engine mpg, but the od will definitely help in the overall battle.
