I average roughly 13.5 with city and high miles, including trips from Denver to the mountains. That's on 275/70/R18 E load tires, rear CBI bumper w/ full size spare, roof rack, and 150lb RTT. Without wind and flat highway driving, I can get around 16-17 keeping it under 80.

This was a pretty easy install and fully customizable. I plan on going to 33ís with my next tires and Iíll just change the % on the speedohealer and itíll be right on.

Iíve tested it against a gps unit and itís right on now.
Did you get the universal version? I was looking at the universal version 4, which is a bit over $100, does that sound right?

Yea it was the universal one. The price sounds about right. I did it about 4 years ago, but I think it was just over $100.

Thereís a thread somewhere on here that has the step by step pictures on how to install the universal version. It was pretty easy.

Cool, thanks. Yeah, I remember seeing a thread like you described a year or two ago. Iíll probably snag one, and get it installed soon because I hate having stuff that either doesnít work, or in this case is inaccurate!

My thought is, If you're worried about gas mileage, you bought the wrong car.

Wrong car. Wrong engine. Wrong drivetrain.

This thing is purpose built. MPG not in the job description.

While I agree with you, and also enjoy the smiles per gallon I get with the V8, I don't see the harm in trying to get the most out of it we can. MPG's obviously directly impact the range we can get (some of us have to travel forever to get to the mountains...) 33's are a good benchmark for a capable offroad vehicle. You can generally get away with less, but they look and act the part and actually add ground clearance.

I'm curious who here has regeared when going to 33's. What did you go with and what are your thoughts? Is it necessary or are the 3.73's enough.

No armor, empty truck, 32".
275/65/18 Toyo AT2 E rated, which has made my speedo closer than it used to be, 82.5 mph actual at 80. But I hate the tires, and now the ride.
13.5-14mpg though

Glad I have a company gas card.
