    Make a pre-runner for the street with no LSD.

    Yes i have but i live in California.
    We are a no rust state.

    I will check my truck, but i am sure it does not have any rust at all.

    I have a different rig, but may help you get an idea of what to expect. I went from 21.5 to 18.5 MPG (highway) going from 265/70 to 285/75 (with 2.5" lift) on my '04 4x4 DC V6. Interestingly around town I averaged 17.5MPG before and after. I have kept track of MPG meticulously since owning the truck, and yes, latter numbers are adjusted for odometer offset with larger tires. I didn't expect a 3 MPG highway drop, but I like the looks of the truck too much now to go back. Hope this helps!
