That's impressive. I haven't hit above 17 (similar setup and gas, double cab, short bed) and usually get about 15.

I'm guessing mostly highway miles?

Yes, I drive mostly all highway miles. I commute 50 miles a day to work, so I guess that helps. I am watching my shift points now and trying to shift at 2000 rpm and below.
I hope it continues to go up as it breaks in more.
Now I gotta get the 07 spring TSB and Tailgate TSB done sometime.:

I ran out 1/4 of a tank of city driving in charleston, then drove back to greenville and ran my tank down to about 1/8th of a tank. I filled up an did the math. With the first 1/4 of the tank in the city and the rest on the highway and the AC on the whole time, i got 20.25mpg. I was cruising between 70 and 75mpg on the way back
