    650 bucks in gas plus needing a second driver or a 280 dollar trailer on the Uhaul. Either way it will suck. But when I get out there I may have to convert over to the SAS BS thread lol.

    Are you guys factoring in the odometer off from the larger tires? Last time I went down to Tucson I got 17.6 but that was cruisin right at or a little under 75. Usually average right around 16 with mix driving.

    You guys may also want to tell him your gearing as that will play a big part in your number.

    Driving like a nancy on the highway vs. city stop and go fast. I'm sure once I get out on the road it will go up but regardless 2,300 miles at 18-14 mpg is going to suck. I'm pretty sure I will just tow it

    You can gusset it without pulling the engine, but you pretty much have to pull the front diff.

    Pulling the front diff isn't as bad as you think. Well at least for the zero gens it an short process
