    six inch fabtech lift, 315-75-16 tires,
    just bought this 01 tacoma....3.4 with 6" fabtech lift.
    no dents scratches or rust. 150k on it. pretty sure it was never on a trail. it was a flordia truck. haven't had a toyota truck since 96, forgotten just about everything about them. it seems like Im getting 10-15 mpg with it. seems low. tires are 315-75-16.
    not sure what the gearing is. dont know where to look. got a budbuilt skid pan coming this week. feel free to rant and banter away to educate me in any way.I will re-learn all this. so random useless facts will help. here r some pics,

    Welcome :wave: running those 35s with that DB lift will yield you around those mpg numbers. That truck looks good though.

    thanks guys, yea ....ok, the tread is just about dead on those tires. Im liking the reviews on the Cooper 285-75r-16 STT. hope that will help a little, without sacrificing look. I think they are about two inches smaller. Hoping it will save the drive train a little too. set of four 179.$ a piece at farm and fleet. guess they have been discontinued, hence the discount
