Schnieder spec'ed truck direct drive question

I haul oilfield equipment which means at times I have to drive fast. The truck I'm looking at has a 10 speed tranny and 2.64 rears. Most of the time I'll be under 80K but occasionally I'll be up to 120K gross. Will this truck fit my needs?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

For oil field work, it would not be my first choice. It will work, but you will have to be more of a driver to keep from tearing things up. The 1st gear reduction is fine with the direct 10. Startability is no nearly as good as with the higher number rear ratios. That setup is primarily designed around regular highway use pulling general freight.
