Interesting. I seem to do closer to 14 and 70mph. But my tires are a lot light and the truck is lower than yours. Either way it is an improvement, that's good!

I think technically 4.10s and 35s are closer to stock. But you should factor in extra rolling mass, extra weight and drag, etc. which is why most people gear lower than stock for bigger tires.

wind drag and rotating mass kill mpg.

Yeah see I just don't pay attention to the price either. I only look at gallons and don't get a receipt. I'm going to buy the gas anyway so it doesn't make a difference.

yep 3.05 for 87, ya not sure why our gas is so high here, everywhere else in this state is in the ~2.80 range. I think theres alittle price gouging going on cause our economy is good from the oil fields...I pay attention cause it was $82 or something like that. lol
