Not a bad price IMO.

Max Trailering Package,

This package includes:


  • Automatic locking rear differential
  • 9.76" rear axle
  • 3.73 rear axle ratio
  • Integrated trailer brake controller
  • Enhanced cooling radiator
  • Revised shock tuning for increased control

On LT, this package includes a heavy-duty automatic locking rear differential and the Trailering Package. It requires the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine. On LTZ, this package requires the 5.3L EcoTec3 V8 engine or 6.2L EcoTec3 V8 engine.



$980

As for the pricing - it looks to be about the same as if you ordered the existing trailering pkg along with the brake controller - 730 +230 =960 add 20 for the rear end and you have it. I really doubt if they added much to the suspension over the existing trailering pkg offering.

Joe,HD2007 there is a revise spring load package that goes with the (NHT) package as well,due to the increase in towing to 10,000lbs,with the 6.2L. Also a increase in bed payload as well. Eaton's auto locking differential a stout axle at 9.76. Same axle as Fords F150 Platinum. So this package will haul the bacon,as it is mated to the 5.3L or the 6.2L.Helllo Dolly,towing 10,000 plus that is the same as my 3/4 ton will haul in 2011

When you're not towing, 3.73 gearing won't yield good mpg numbers correct vs 3.42?

Probably not as good, but I don't have the numbers to back it up. I bet it would still be better than 2013 and older trucks.

:lurk: Anybody have any real world MPG numbers yet on the 6.2L with 3.42 or 3.73 gears?

It would mean the can't get enough of one of the parts to build them as fast as being ordered. When automakers pay suppliers for tools and equipment, they are also purchase a given amount of capacity - so many per day/week etc. If the rate of usage is high there is sometimes not enough manufacturing capacity.

 

Often happens when a new model or option is first released or when there is some problem slowing a part of the manufacturing stream.

Typically with shorter gearing you will pay some highway mileage penalty (1-2 MPG). However, your city mileage will probably be better, especially in stop and go traffic as you will have more torque available at the rear wheels at all times.
