My truck is a 2wd auto transmission and it has about 186 thousand milles on it. I really want it to get more horse power i want to just be able to push the gas pedal and respond quick

186k on trans will not hold the power of the S/C for long. If you have a rebuilt in it recently im sure you will be ok for a while.

Sounds like you are a good candident for gears

well the trans probably needs to be completely rebuilt. But i was referring to swapping out the differential gears. A couple hundred on parts and labor, Prolly around 400?

Buy a house at the top of a hill. That'll speed her up.
