    Is there a different 5th gear I can swap out for my manual 5 speed?

    I'd like to lower my 5th gear rpm. At 65 mph my RPM's are at 2500. I'd like to be closer to 2000.
    I've done this in my Honda but I'm not sure if there is a gear that can be replaced in the Ram.
    Does anyone know? TIA.

    Not in the tranny, but there are 3.55 gears for the rear axle, but that would change the whole response of the truck. The other alternative would be a gear vendor overdrive you could switch in and out.
