Answer to "3.08 gears with volvo Ishift"The D13 Is all you will need. Mine is 455 hp 1750 torque. Pulls just as good or better as the Western Star 500 HP Cat I used to drive. Volvo has it nailed with the computer controlled fuel management system.
Answer to "3.08 gears with volvo Ishift"Robert I forgot...You may do even better with the new XE package which is designed for lighter loads. Its got the D13 12 speed I shift and 2.67 gears. I would have ordered this truck but I was a little skeptical for my application.
Answer to "3.08 gears with volvo Ishift"Hey Robert, I run a 2013 Volvo 670 D13 w/ 3.08 rear gear and I shift. I absolutely love this truck. I drive 55 and am averaging over 8 mpg. See my fuel guages...look up Smoke Bomb.... I haul average to heavy loads. I see no reason for you to do better than I with the loads you describe. I ordered a new truck Volvo 730 with the D13 and I shift with the 3.07 gear single drive axle with optional locking differential. So Im confident this combination/configuration will get me better fuel mileage once get my own truck. Take Care Chad....
