Especially since im a 5 speed and autos get worse mileage and a few have said they get 4cyl mileage haha
My double cab v6 according to ultra gauge gets 20 easy on the hwy and it's an auto. but I got 23 once in my 96 before I started modding it. But it was mostly at 45-55mph.

Our trucks sweet spot is 45-55. 65 is not. And especially nothing above that.

I do not drive like a great grandma with my V6 5-speed, and last tank, 100% city, 265/75/16 Load Range E BFG ATs, 2" lift, and sliders; I got 18.9 MPG. That is with the topper as well. When I try to get better mileage in town, I usually get about 21. Best I ever got (and repeated almost identically twice) was 26.2MPG driving between Steamboat and Fort Collins. Those who know that drive understand it is probably an average speed of about 50-55mph 2-lane highway with lots of curves and hills.

In fact, I'm in FC now, filled up in Steamboat, I'll report back with the millage I got when I fill up tomorrow or Sunday before heading back up.
It's easy.

Spend around 4-8k on the truck in armor and big tires and other shit till it is super tall in the air and weights 5000lbs..then you get 10mpg like me

I should also say that I'm always trying to apply the lightest amount of pressure on the gas pedal to go a certain speed.

I'm very conscious about my right foot, in other words.

With my 4cyl 5spd 4x4, 4:30's tube bumper, and 31x10.5 duratracs I get around 22-25 mpg doing 65 on the highway. Mpg really drops when going over 65. But, I don't really care. I bought a truck, not a compact. It gets decent mileage, hauls crap, and offroads. Seems decent enough to me.

haha my 2.7 auto got 20 when it was bone stock on 31s

now that it has 33s and armor i only get 20 if i am driving 100% highway. How madjik gets such good mpg is a dam mystery, it's like his truck is part prius.

You also have to remember my suspension has 165,000 miles on it.

I'm sure my truck is gaining some sort of aerodynamic advantage.
