she's got diamond eye straight pipe,intake,chip thats it. It get better than any other truck i have or have owned. This is my first auto and i always though manuals got better mileage but not so on this truck. Its unbelievable! I have played with the tranny shifts a little but i keep it on the 60hp setting and it does better then the 120hp setting. this thing is crazy.

Re: im looking for about 22mpg or better

I know that my truck tows fine with 3.55's, and I've towed ~8K. a little sluggish like that, but still perfectly manageable. 3.31's should tow up to 5k without issue, and a little heavier with a good, gentle driver

I wish mine was close then haha. With my cruise set on 59 mph and in my 140 setting. Mine will say like 27.6 with my 35's and 20's. Now I KNOW mine aint near right. I'll reset it every so often for ####s and giggles. Hell I wish it was remotely close. I average around 15 per tank.

Re: im looking for about 22mpg or better

is your speedo recalibrated?
the larger wheels and tires will hurt you, and I'll take back what I said about towing heavy. 3.31's would be real hard on an automatic with bigger tires and towing...
