Nice find with the 8.1. How do you like it for towing the 45?

I have been spoiled by my diesel. It pulls the 45 like a dream. The 8.1 honestly struggles a bit. Does just fine till there's a hill on the highway.

Have any of you had issues with the 6L80E transmission?

I know the 4L60E's were junk for towing.

I think mine is the 4L80E (4 speed), but no, haven't had an issue. The only thing in the drivetrain was the transfer case. I have the "auto t-case" and did have the internal spring wear a hole in my t-case blowing fluid under truck and boat. Luckily found a shop in Butte MT that fixed it. There is a fix for this defect too, that was done at the same time.

Otherwise, good.

I realized after I bought them that being a 10 ply they are really designed for a 1 ton so that's why I'm obviously have ride quality issues. total newb move.

They look awesome though and they literally don't wear at all, so I got that going for me! I'll try to get a pic in a few.
I believe I have 305/65r17's.

It is a stiffer truck overall but nothing too bad in my opinion.
