MPG with this combo?

I know, I know too many variables. But just a ballpark. 4.0 3.73's 33x12.5 boggers. Not driving like an idiot.

14-16 you have an OHV motor, so they are a little worse on gas.

he would be lucky.....

when i was running 33's w/ 3.73 gears i was getting 15 on the highway and about 13.5 in the city............since Boggers are a bit larger than the 33's i was running you should get a little worse than that....

My mileage is showing 15's with 4.1 and sohc on 33's. Once I add the 7% to the miles driven to correct the odometer it's low 17's.

What kind of mileage do you get now? It's impossible to give you an accurate estimate without knowing what MPG you get with your stock setup.

12-13 is what you will get I will not guess I am telling you. Your truck will not want to turn them things with 3.73's. I have TSL's and could not imagine boggers with 3.73's. I hate it with the TSL's. I get 13 consistenly and I baby the gas big time. If you want boggers. I would think you don't care about road noise, smooth driving, or any on road features. But get some new gears or a lighter less aggressive tire if this is not a primarily off road vehicle. Boggers great for the off road but even for off road you should go to at least 4.10 gears. I am going to 4.56 gears that is truly how hard of a time the truck has to turn these tires. And you can forget about OD the truck will not stay in OD it will only shift in and out.
