Wink 450 gear vendor overdrive

Has anyone used this on a 4.88 450? Ol larry is getting murdered on economy with no deletes still and 4.88s don't help. Any input appreciated

Re: 450 gear vendor overdrive

I will be watching this thread, as I have a 450 with 4.88's and mileage is still on the low side.
I would like the same mileage I get doing 60 at 75, which the gear vendor would do it.

Re: 450 gear vendor overdrive

I think it would be the best for you guys with the 4.88's and factory tires . Should really reduce the rpm's when cruising and have the ratio needed to get the big loads rolling from a start.

Re: 450 gear vendor overdrive

Are the trucks stock? With a modded truck re gearing and still getting the load rolling shouldn't be a problem, these trucks can make a boat load of power. Seriously tho.. If you can throw a bigger tire on it, it'll bring the ratio down some.

Re: 450 gear vendor overdrive

I took it as they are still stock, since the nothing was deleted.

Re: 450 gear vendor overdrive

It's still stock. It does not lack power. At 70 it's doing 2450 and 9 mpg. Oh yeah don't want bigger
Tires because speedo has to stay accurate. When we tote the bote the trailer is too wide to run without a dot number and a lot of paperwork to be oversize. Not to mention laying out every route. So getting stopped for speeding is not an option lol.

Re: 450 gear vendor overdrive

Shoot I would mod that puppy.. thats cheaper than a GV and good for mileage, pleasure and better towing...

If you are lookin to stay all stock then I don't know the exact answer for gears.. sorry.

Re: 450 gear vendor overdrive

Definitely deleting and tuning. Just looking for that extra gear for 75 cruising without worrying about water pump cavitation from
High rpms.
