    I voted 11mpg as thats my city average whether towing or not. Highway, 16mpg as the new tune up has helped things. Also, 285/75/r16 tires.

    13 or so city and 15-20 highway depending on how I drive and how far. But my truck is pretty much stock for now, minus the flowmaster muffler.

    And how does one build a tune? And is it worth the cost savings in gas $?

    Add 300lb. for 4x4 and another 20lbs per tire for 285/75 and 40lbs for side boxes and I’m up 420lbs net weight.

    I’m curious who’s running a v6 and who’s got a v8 and what the average mpg difference is.

    Hahahaha! My truck loves parking at Stone, Ballast Point and Mother Earth.

    285/75 16 tires, with rims at about 80lbs per corner. Spare is same size, about 5lbs less. I carry about 150lbs of tools and subwoofer. 4.56 gears too. I keep the truck around 65.

    go easy on the skinny pedal. I'm beginning to think the AT3s are MPG suckers because thats what my dad's 4x4 gets highway too.

    I guess I know what I'm not getting when I get mine back from the dealer.

    It's 4x4. I will admit though. I do baby my truck while I'm driving it. Slow accelerations and I don't do much higher than 70 on the freeway. I have a feeling if I didn't regear I would be getting piss poor mileage with the 35s.

    I’m sensing this theme of re-gearing and getting better mpg.

    but doesn't regearing mean running at a higher RPM? shouldn't that decrease mpg?
