Mileage question is you have: 4.0, 35's, 4:10's, BL, SL

What are you guys getting for mileage if you have the following: 4.0, 35's, 4:10's, BL, SL. Let me know what other mods you have, but I am really curious what you city & highway mileage you're getting.

Thanks,

-Mike

Honestly, it's been so long that I cant remember. lol. I want to say in the neighborhood of 15 highway and 12 city. But I've got a manual and that was alot of 4th gear highway to keep the bastard moving up hills. Just intake and exhaust were the only engine related mods.

That's depressing.

BUT.....Trevor(TrePaul86) reports numbers of 18 hwy and mixed of 16. He too is only intake and exhaust.


Take what I said with a grain of salt, the numbers. It's been about a year since I was 4.10.

Ok, hopefully a few more will respond. I'm getting 16-17 and that's mostly 60/40% highway/city.

I think the MPG would be pretty bad, but can't say for sure. If it were me I would wait until I could do everything at once with 4.56's or 4.88's.

Ya I want a BL pretty bad and just haven't completely decided if I want to go with 33's or 35's. I really hate to go with 35's and kill my mileage and lose my power again since I just got my power back by going to 4:10's.

DOOOOOO IT. Imagine if you still had 3.55's and decided to want 35's! 4.10's are livable with 35's and a the 4.0. Not great, but livable. You've got it nice since you've got an auto....it sorta hinders the side effects of the 4.10 and 35's. Manuals you can really really feel the tire change. Took me 8 months of driving it with 4.10's to be sick of it. Then in went the 4.88's.

Oh...and you only got ONE axle to deal with! Half the cost to regear it!

I would go with 35's with a SL and BL. Like Shane said, 4.10's are livable, but I'm sure you'll lose your current MPG without a regear. Just makes sense. It will look good though!

I drooled over Scott's truck quite a bit at the Knoxville meet and he's doubled lifted and has 33's. I liked the way that looked, I just don't want to regear right now.
