You are getting awesome mileage... so good, that I find it hard to believe... Anyways, itd be cheaper to put smaller tires on the truck than regear.

Whose tuning are you running now?

your towing your toy hauler on a 140 tune with 35s? what are your EGTs like?

I play hell keeping my truck wound up in the higher tunes when towing with my 6sp, maybe you should look into a tow tune with a little less timing and fuel.

4.10's are the best bet. But it's a chunk of your wallet because you need to change two.

4.10s are gonna kill your milage and any truck with a turbo you have to keep the rpms up to the power up and egts down. Turn the od off if you're have problems but if egts are in check i wouldn't worry

unless there is something wrong with my truck; I can tell you 4:10's are going to kill you.
My truck is an 03 F350 CC LWB DRW with 4:10's.
I get 10mpg in the winter and 12-12.5 in the summer and this is empty. granted I only drive 15 miles to/from work, I get the worst mileage ever.
I think 3.73's are ...Nevermind
with 35's and 4:10; you should bring your gear ratio back to around stock (3:73) but you will most likely see a slight drop in fuel mileage.
