I know that sounds like an oxymoron since I want to add a lift, but I'm maybe getting 20 mpg stock. If I could keep that and go from 255's up to 31's or maybe even 275's I'd be happy. What programmers do you like? Also, does a throttle spacer help power/mileage, and how much damage would it cause if I completely gutted my exhaust?
Welcome to the site. I just want to clarify for your future, you said "255's to 31's or maybe even 275's." When speaking in regards to a 31" tire, that is the profile of the tire, such as for example a 60 profile tire, or 55. 255 is the width of the tire, so in this instance you'd probably be looking at a 31" tall tire(profile), with 10.50" of width. Not picking on ya, just want to make sure you understand how the measurements work!
