Experienced truckers know the importance of air intake systems and how critical they are to maximize the efficiency of their diesel powered truck. For some extra oomph, installing a performance air filter or a cold air intake is a great way to increase the amount of fresh air going into your engine.

A lower axle ratio (numerically higher) means you can accelerate faster and tow heavier loads, but this comes at the expense of fuel economy. Both Ford and Dodge offer a range of gear- ing options, but, the Chevy Silverado only comes with a 3.73 gear ratio.
