    yeah, i'm trying to avoid dipping that low, esp with with this big ass road trip, which is one reason i'm not putting the SC or snorkel on yet. YET! i've got the front winch/bumper with 4x 2in dually d2s and a 20 in bar. i was torn between just rattle canning/plasti-derping/rhino lining the rear bumper, but caved when i remembered how many times i've been rear ended/backed into in the past 3 years (15 - thank you san antonio).

    Once you do the math and use actual numbers, the MPG shock should ease a little.

    Says the FNG!
    Lol

    You had brought the whole community together yesterday

    My odometer is all jacked up!! Same places I always go adds up to about 50 or 60 miles round trip. With the 35s on there sometimes it reads 90 miles round trip, and sometimes 40! Would you like to add mine up??? Lol

    What was your stock size, and what are you running now? I'll do the math and tell you the difference.

    Good question! ! I dont know what stock was. Never really paid attention to it. Maybe because I only had them for 2000 miles. But whatever stock is vs my 35x12.5

    It looks like your wheel travels 12.9% further than stock. So if you go 300 miles on a tank this is what the math will look like:

    300 x .129 = 38.7 additional miles

    So when doing your MPG use 338.7

    This is also helpful when doing scheduled maintenance.
