What size tires do you have on yours? I have the old 16.5 wheels and want to change them to regular 16's but have to find out which ones will fit on it.

Have you looked at gear vendors? Another option would be to look for a a518 46RH or an a618 (which is essentially a 727 with overdrive) mopar transmission. That will get you the extra gearing you want. You may have to figure wiring and such.

Here are 2 links to read on more technical issues.

Forgot to add, hope this all helps

List of Chrysler transmissions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A518 (46RH/46RE)
The A518, later renamed 46RH (hydraulic controlled governor pressure) and 46RE (electronic controlled governor pressure), is an A727 derivative with overdrive, in the A500 ilk. Starting in the early 1990s, it was used in trucks and vans. The overdrive fourth gear ratio is 0.69:1.
Gear ratios:
1 2 3 4 R
2.45 1.45 1.00 0.69 2.35
Applications:
Dodge Ram pickup and vans 1500/2500/3500 V8 engines (DGT)
Dodge Ramcharger SUV 1992-1993 5.2L & 5.9L V8
Jeep Grand Cherokee 1998 5.9L
Jeep Grand Cherokee 1993-1995 5.2 V8
1996 Dodge Dakota V8 (Also 98-03 Dakota 5.9L R/T)

X-1995 Dodge Ram Van 2500 5.2L Magnum V8


a618
A618 (47RH/47RE/48RE)[edit source | editbeta]
The A618, later renamed 47RH (hydraulic controlled governor pressure) and 47RE (electronic controlled governor pressure), is a heavier-duty version of A518. It was used in trucks and vans starting in the mid-1990s. While currently used with some internal changes when coupled to the 5.9 L Cummins Turbo-Diesel and the 8.0 L V-10 applications, it's still a 727 with overdrive and stronger internal parts. It has an input torque rating of 450 lbft (610 Nm). The 48RE is an electronically-governed, four-speed heavy-duty overdrive automatic transmission, that is stronger than its predecessor, the 47-series.
Gear ratios:
1 2 3 4 R
2.45 1.45 1.00 0.69 2.21


Applications:
Dodge Ram pickups 2500/3500 ISB Diesel and iron V-10 (DGP)
Dodge Ram SRT-10 (DGP)f
1996-2002 (Also some early production 2003's) Dodge Ram 2500/3500 Diesel/V10
1994-1995 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 Diesel/V10
2003-2004 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 ISB Diesel

Well, I've seen Class B+, a little over a class B, As far as registration, GA considers it a Class C I think it is.
