I was averaging about 18.8 from Jan -Apr. (first 4000 miles). Now with new tires and lift after the first tank, I got 17.9mpg but corrected for larger tires since the speedo is off by 3.4% now I figure I actually went further than the odo is registering so really I got 18.5 mpg. Still hard to tell after only one tank plus the weather is warming up which tends to increase mpgs and not sure when exactly they change from winter to summer blend gas. Difference seems to be negligible.

I still seem to be averaging around 18.5 - 19mpg. Got the rest of my list installed. Spidertrax were the last to come in (nearly 8weeks). What a difference those wheels spacers make in the look. Before it looks like a fat kid on stilts. So much more aggressive looking now. Also, the lamin-x was a major PITA to deal with. Still not happy with the results there. Bubbles and some edges peeling up. Totally waste of money. Oh well, live and learn. I'll have some pics up in a couple days.

How do you like the TRD exhaust? I was leaning towards this mod soon. How does it sound?
