i have a 07 1500 with 3.92 gears. thinking about a body lift and some 35s. was wondering what mpg i would be getting with the 3.92? i now have 33s and getting 12 to 13 mpg. this is mostly short trips here and there. on a long trip i will get around 15mpg. thanks.

i just have a hooker aerochamber muffler and i dont mind when mds is on...the muffler gives it a very bass tone...it drones but for some reason i just dont mind it...plus it acually works so i dont mind at all...

i have 33's stock and it comes on often enough...i can acually get up to highway speed using mds only...but 4.56 gears will help with mds ALOT i think so im definitally going to try it out this spring!!

35" toyo mt's...4.56 gears...auto tranny: 10ish in town, 12ish on Hwy.

Haven't recalibrated the speedo yet, but when comparing to the gps, it's only reads about 5% slow, which would add about .5mpg to those numbers. A little less skinny pedal would probably help even more. :D

11.5 city / 15-16 hwy before 6" lift

10 city / 13 hwy after lift (increased weight and wind resistance killed mpg)
