I've driven/ridden in a range of buses, man.
I'm tellin ya highway gears are SO underrated. Its awesome.
Even coming over monteagle, I've never missed having super low granny gearing.
This bus with the 3.42 is pretty quick, man. Even off the line.
The torque of the 3126 pulls it nicely from a stop even with the really tall gearing.

Ended up with a 2002 3500 Savanna 6.5

And I do not know how to rotate the darn pic.

Went for a test drive of five window.
171-K on it
Wife was riding in the bus as well snapping pics.
Waiting for the paperwork and should get it next Thursday.
My first bus ride in over 40 plus years.

Darn tires seem small.
Will start a thread once I get it home.
Will do a lift on it and larger tires before it gets on the road.

Needs to be raised 2-3.

Thanks for information. Found it local.
