    I have only driven the truck about 100miles with the powertrax in the rear, so once i get some more miles under her, ill let yall know if it affected the MPG at all.

    Terrible. With my 285 duratracs and 3in lift all city miles I'm only averaging around 14.4mpg.

    I have a 2 in lift but the tires are whats killing my mileage. 17 mpg on Kumho mudders. I'll stick with AT's next time. Love the look and the traction though!

    I did it again. Got tired of paying truck payments and gas and traded in for a 2015 Honda Accord Sport since I enjoyed my 2013 Sport so much.
    Less than I would like.

    Cold weather city driving I have gotten as low as 15-16mpg.

    I just drove 200 miles from DFW to College Station with the cruise set at 67-68mph and got a solid 20mpg.

    Going towards DFW at 73-74 mph netted me a lousy 17-18mpg.

    Slightly larger tires than stock and mild suspension lift

    I really don't know how some of the guys with more modifications claim to get than 20mpg. I'm also pretty gentle with the throttle.

    6" lift with 325/65r18 and 4.88 gears and I get 9-11. MPG is for little cars and hybrids, bet they can't jump a ditch and take off through the woods :)
