    What rear end gears are you guys running with your TKO-500? I find the first gear in the tranny to be really low when combined with my 3.91s. I'm thinking of switching to 3.55 or 3.23. Anyone out there with either of those?

    I forgot to mention I have a 26” tall tire. What size tire do you have?

    295 50 15 Cooper Cobras. 8” rim. About 1935 RPM @ 70 MPH. Right in the sweet spot, and easy roll ons from 70 plus. Loafs on freeway. Reward is less noise, less wear, and increased range. 69 Coronet R/T.
