I doubt it would be worth the trouble even if it is possible. The 8 speed is computer controlled and your trucks ECU will not talk to a new 8 speed.

No.

I figured. The reason I asked was because I tow trailers often and figured if I could it would be a good option for more efficiency. Do you guys know of any tuners that would be a good fit?
