I had a 1-2 mpg drop running bfg at's in 265 over bridgestone revos in the same size.

Depending on how many sizes your jumping you might need to plan a regear.

If fuel economy is on your mind a lift and big tires are the opposite way to go.

Where can I see pictures of your truck? we're running the same tire size

i get about 50-60 miles for each 1/4 and I am pretty easy on the throttle. I think it drinks fuel alot faster when on the highway
