The RPM's I'm seeing in what I think is 4th gear would almost exactly match where I should be if running 5.89 rear gears. Does anyone actually run those gears? When I bought the truck the original trans was blown to bits in a box in the cab, so I never drove it before now.
Anything's a possibly. Jack up the rear. mark a tire and the D/S, rotate the tire n count the turns of the D/S as the tire makes one full round. Will get u real close.

You need to verify/confirm whether or not the trans is getting 4th gear before you start looking other places.
