Idle time and road speed are the biggest factors there.

You ain't kiddin. My next truck will be a tow truck. Try rockin back half a gear. Higher rpm and less throttle. That worked with my isx, mileage went up a lot when heavy. I had lower gears though. It liked 17th at 60ish mph when heavy. It hated lugging. Keeps temps down too

17th isn't efficient. It goes in this order:

16th (direct) most efficient, both boxes direct <--- 11th on a 13
17th least efficient, both boxes turning <--- 12th on a 13
18th in between, front box turning rear box direct <--- 13th on a 13

This is with a 13/18 with two overdrive gears.

Yea, you'll be forever in 16th. Lol. In MY experience, when I was loaded, 115-117k, until I was 72-73 mph it wasn't real happy in 18th. I could roll with traffic in 17th and it just seamed to be happier. Although if I was in the big gear it was just in a better spot at 72-73. That's just too fast for most of the roads I used to run.

Trans efficiency is less important than engine rpm under load imo.

Not feasible without a gear change.

You need to drink more Kevin Rutherford Kool-Aid. You need a Eaton FR15210B 10spd and the fastest rears you can get. You need one with a ring gear as small as a pickup truck and gross 45k hauling amazon boxes in a smooth van trailer. I got this formula for what works for every application off the internet and your not allowed to post inaccurate stuff on the internet.

Could you trim a gasket from a daylight door, then have a glass shop cut a 1 piece glass? Maybe use a daylight door glass?

Not sure.... I did the glass gasket for around the window a couple years ago and it was basically a cut to fit piece. I guess maybe similar could work..... then a rail would have to be mounted on the front side of the door for the window to slide up in. Thereís a plastic piece that the door skin is riveted to at the top. Not sure how that plays into making it a single piece.

Not sure on the tv show.
The regulator setup and such is piss poor. They go down fast but will hardly pull themselves back up. Half the time I have to help them.

I love the look, I love the fact that stupid pos wing window isnít there, but idk if it was worth it.

Is there much of difference in injectors form a 5ek to a mxs. Have a customer the has a 5ek in the shop for a overhaul, that is getting a platinum, that has 15000 miles on injectors, and a mxs that needs injectors.
