I was told that removal of 2 leafs, and lower rear end w/ those drop blocks will help. You will redistribute the weight to the back tires when accelerating. I was told that if you have ability to move cab over 2 to 4 inches to shift weight to drivers side. Watch rpm's rear should be 373 and less than 15 inc. tire may hit 8000 rpm or more. You may know you want 7400 to 7800 rpm.

Good Luck
