    I want to put 4.88 gears in mine for a little extra pep than stock; what kinda mileage do you get? I went from 22 to 18 when I put on my 285 bfgs. Just wondering what I should expect.

    In another thread I remember a guy saying he got around 18 with 33's and 4.88's IIRC. Do you do more city or highway?

    Hey Oliver, where did you get your regear kit at? From the sound of your feedback it seems like the perfect way to go. Hills have gotten better, but far from just laying into 5th. I want to get that done before I come home, so I don't have to waste too much time installing the pile of parts I have waiting. Thanks dude.

    Update:

    Did my usual drive to school and during the trip I decided to do a trip calculation. Pictured are the results:

    [​IMG]

    After corrections for over gearing:
    MPG trip- 26.5 mpg
    Distance- 16.3

    This was almost exactly 50/50 driving city/highway. I will also post a long term later when its well longer.

    After the drive back home for the day.

    [​IMG]

    Going 65 mph on the freeway. So the driving for the trip information shown in the picture above in this post would be about 67% highway 33% city.

    So for the day:
    MPG- 26.23

    I wont be doing this everyday lol so I just wanted to show you guys what I got today around town in my normalish driving. Before re-gear I got about 24.7 driving the same route. Maybe the winds were with me today helping me out, but so far I am extremely happy with the overall results.

    Well sheesh!! Its about time Oliver.. Decided on 4:56 after all eh "sigh"!!:p

    Sounds like you picked the right combo for your needs thou.. Wish I was a little closer to come and compare your truck with mine on 4:88s see what the difference is.

    We should race! I will race to ontario and you race here to phoenix. We will leave at the same time and see who wins haha

    I realize that has nothing to do with anything. We could just do a dyno run and compare values off that!

    If your on the trail daily talk to ryber about his 4.88. I would have loved to go that route but do a lot of long trips and freeway driving. Also trust me when I say do not waste your money on CAI and cat back exhausts. I think the ideal 4 hanger is 4.56 with 33's, header upgrade, AFE pro dry s with secondary removed! That's all you really need to make a great fun dependable daily driver.

    To the OP...I have seen you in here before and noticed your mpgs that you posted in some other thread a while back, which brings me to my question....How exactly do you drive?? I have a regular cab Prerunner manual with 265/75r16 bfg all terrains with nothing but bilsteins in the front set at 1.75" and I have been calculating my mpg for almost two years now and the highest I ever got was 22mpg...my average mpg is 19.5...and here you are with the same engine as mine. but a spindle lift up front with bigger tires (I think right?) and you are getting A HUGE amount more mpgs than I :confused::mad::mad::goingcrazy:

    I never get above 2k rpm in city driving. I drive the speed limit plus 5. I coast to reds in neutral and anticipate the red light. Accelerate with or slightly slower than traffic, no jack rabbit start. I hardly ever use a/c, if I do it stays on Lo. Clean my cabin and air filters regularly. I have all synthetic fluids lubrication my truck. Tires inflated to 35-40 psi. On the freeway I drive cc at 70.
