4x4 4.0L V6 Lifted MPG?

What kind of MPG do you get on a 4WD 4L V6 Ranger with about a 5in lift and some nice mudders?

You are gonna lose MPG when you get bigger tires, that's just part of it. You can get a tuner and an intake to help get some of it back, but you will still lose mpg. FYI: You can get a 3" lift, susp. or body and fit 33's. You can get both andfir 35's.

Well I don't know it looks cool but the MPG I would lose don't seem to be worth it since I drive 50miles everyday just for work would be alot of extra money spent on gas :(

Just put 13.38 gallons in last night ( ((33/31) * 206.7 miles)/13.380 gals).......

04 Fx4 Level II
RCD lift
33x10.50x15 BFG Muds
stock gearing.....

16.4 mpg mostly city driving. On mostly highway trips I've hit as low as 15 and as high as 20, since installing the RCD kit back in early July. Matter of fact, first 4 fill-ups with the lift on were all 19.5XXXX values for MPG. I had 2 fill-ups to go from Las Cruces, NM to Los Alamos, NM, 1 fill-up while in Los Alamos, and 1 to get home.

50 miles = a lot of gas. I wouldn't do it. I get around 13 with 35s on a 3 inch bodylift...


But remember my 35s go further than my truck thinks. Because they move my truck further in one rotation than smaller tires would.

But none the less, I recommend you go supercharged!

Gives you a bit of oomph without blowing your engine.

Yah but if you read it you buy an m90 supercharger, which is common to find in junkyards/ebay for 50-250$...


It's a good cheap option.
