Does anyone have one of the optional gear packages?

The standard is 3.42:1 gears. With 3.73:1 and 4.10:1 each being optional (4.10:1 is not optional on V-8).

Just wondering if anyone has these "freeway gears" and how they like them.

I've had my 2006 TB for 3 days now. I got the 3.73 rear end and it gets the job done. Off the line excelleration is pretty quick but once I get around 45mph its doggy until my RPM gets up higher. I have around 300 miles on it so far and I'm averaging 20mpg.

I just traded in a 2004 bonneville for the TB and the TB is an absolute dog compaired to the bonneville. Hills that I could normally climb at 55mph in OD with the bonneville the TB has to downshift on. This tells me that they have screwed up on the tranny ratio's or they need a 5speed tranny in this thing.
