    Guy before me put cold air intake? Wish it was factory.
    I'm new and I was wondering what kind of milage people are getting. I have a 1st gen. w/2rz, manual, 2wd extended cab currently getting 33mpg around city. (I'm anxious to see what I get on hwy) also, I'm interested in raising the truck to look like a trd 4wd. Info would be great.:)

    I don't know much about lifts for the 5-lug "minis", but there is info to be found here if you search for it.
    As for mileage, I'm getting about 22-24mpg with my '01 2.7l auto Prerunner, w/ K&N drop-in air filter, Flowmaster Super44 muffler and aftermarket 'post' cat. On one trip I was getting over 30mpg averaging 75mph for about 1000 miles total, with completely stock exhaust

    I have a 1996 regular cab, 2WD manual transmission with the 2RZ-FE engine, and I am getting 28+ MPG currently. The truck has 192K miles on it right now. It was a bit a better when I was running Amsoil 0W30. The conventional has brought it down 1-2 MPG. I will see what happens now that I have Amsoil 5W30 back in it versus my previous run of Havoline conventional.
