5 speed overdrive (ZF S5-42). .76 top gear.
I'd like to put Michelin 11.00r16 XL Tires on it (39") but they are hard to find and the XZLs are expensive.
Universal Tire has a 10.50-16 STA Military Directional tire that stands a little over 38" but I don't know enough about them yet.
The truck will be a little heavier with the engine swap, but I don't plan on using it as a tow rig.
I don't mind starting out in first, or downshifting on the grades, as long as it pulls the flats well.
