Very nice truck. What year is it? (Edit, I was getting 770 vs 780 confused. Brain fart, LOL). 

How many years have you owned it?
What's the age on the tires? 
Do you know the rear end ratio and is it an OD transmission?

I purchased it in 2006, and it's a 2000 VNL64T770 (boasts the largest integral sleeper available whereas the 660 is not as wide or as long). Tires were new all the way around.  Tires only have about 10,000 miles on them and have been protected when not in use.  The tires show no sign of checking at all.  The rear axle ratio is 3.58 and the tranny is an 18 speed http://www.roadranger.com/rr/ProductsServices/ProductsbyCategory/Transmissions/PCT_486870

you are correct, I was thinking 770 was the 2nd gen, but it's the 780 that's the 2nd gen. Yeah, it is bigger than the 660. Too many numbers to keep track of. haha. 

Hmm, same ratio my truck is now except I only have a 10spd. Being able to split those higher gears would be really nice. 

I really like your truck, but I wold have to sell mine to make it work.

...except for 6-7% grades (or more) anywhere, but especially in the high altitudes of the Rockies, or with strong head or tail winds. My combined weight with full everything and two bikes was 43,600 lbs,  so maintaining the sweet spot of 1650 RPM under all conditions requires lots of splits.   Also on steep downgrades, the Jake will hold  a steady speed without brakes if the correct split is chosen.

Just food for thought...
