It's not how many miles are on it, it's how many are left.

Congratulations!

Yeah, I have 3.07 gears with 31's so she is a bit of a pig on the interstate. From what I understand once I get her geared properly I should be around 2500 rpms at 70.

When I am not in school I live in Braselton Ga, so not too far from you.

3 speed automatic here

5 speed ax-15 here, that is why there is such a difference. I know 2000 rpms is low for 70 mph.
