3.0 pullys

i am looking into ordering the pullies from stuffforyourranger but i want to here from people who already have it, no bs just facts. I am most interested in the increase in mpg real numbers atm im getting 22.5 to 23 mpg. On a side note any other 3.0 guys around southern LA wanna looking into getting and maybe we all do it together? I could see a great day with massive intakes of a beer

Is it worth it to get the water pump pulley? Would I get the same results just getting the ones for the Crank and Alternator?

The crank is the only one you'll notice gains from.

Water pump pulley is mostly for show. It is a bit lighter but I don't know by how much. Alternator pulley just spins the alternator up to stock RPM so you don't lose any voltage output at idle.

So you don't even really need the alternator pulley either? Is it a good idea to get it anyway?

I would. I have a system in my truck and others have various other accessories that draw a lot of power.
