Re:3.73 or 4.10 to tow 13,050 pounds.?!

Ask yourself the following : How often ,how far will I be towing ?<br>Will I be towing flat land or hills and long grades ?<br>Will I do any of the above in temperature extremes ?<br>If it's often,far,hilly,and HOT or cold,or a combination of these......... Go with the 4.10's your engine and drivetrain will thank you . I don't believe that any percieved fuel usage advantage of the 3.73's will offset the towing advantages of the 4.10's . If you tow &quot;on occasion &quot;and not far... 3.73's will serve well . <br>But then what do I know..... I run a FROD <br>Good luck on your decision . all the best , John

I am not sure but what the 4.10 will give better mileage when towing. If you are towing heavy, the engine will be working less. Since I have not towed with the 3.73 I can't be sure. I know I am happy with the combo towing 16000.<br><br>Bob
