When I lifted the truck I lost some bottom end power and gained some top end; so I want my bottom end power plus when I am towing in high altitude the truck lags big time. They said if I regear I will get some bottom end power back and would help in higher altitudes. Downside to that I will loose top end power and my gas mileage will be affected right know I go 80mph and I am at 2300 rpms when I regear it will be higher how much higher I don't know.......

I don't know but it's the one where everyone at night goes to race the sandrails dune buggies or quads and very few and I only see the badass rigs make it up from a dead stop everone else has to get a running start

Don't know I checked with SilverBACK 07 he's running the same gears and he said he lost 1-2 mpg and stated fuel light comes on about 210 or 215.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Also, my gas mileage is also effected by the amount of weight on my truck, I'm sure all the armor and recovery gear doesn't help it.
open loop should only happen at 80% throttle...Not at a certain RPM....

Well....Im betting thats definatly causeing poor mpg. It shouldnt be going into open loop until 80% throttle.....Only thing I can think of is the air filter. Can you swap in the OEM filter and see if it still does the same? Only reason Im wondering about this, is I get between 15 and 17 mpg towing my 3000# boat, and it stays in closed loop....even over 70 mph....
