Best tips for MPG is don't lift it... I think if I remember correctly, a few guys on here are getting 15-17 with the lifts, while others complain that they get 12-13. Thats with 33" tires on up.

Best tips, exhaust, intake, tuner, synthetic oil, cruise control, tonneau cover, proper tire pressure, removal of lead foot.

With my 4.0 and 3.73 gears... 33x12.5x15 Kumho MT's I've pulled 21 mpg once. That was on literally a straight 300 mile freeway trip with the cruise locked on 68 mph. Pretty much sat at 2.1k RPMs for 4 hours. I have a feeling that the calculation was skewed a bit or something, but that's what it came out to.

But yeah... I can get 20's occasionally even with my lift. More often though, on long trips I usually get around 18. Down around 14-16 with any decent amount of town driving. Any amount of cold weather and it probably drops to 11-12. My truck hates the cold mornings. It chunks the gas like I chunk energy drinks.
