Thanks for the replys fellas. Actually I've been getting this type of mileage frome the start, prior to lift/ tires/ Edge. Right after I bought the truck (new) I put 295/75/16 bfg KO's on with a level lift. Been getting the same mileage since then. About 2004, I was looking for better so I put in the intake and exhaust to help breathe better. Still no increase. Got about 50K miles off the bfg's, and decided to get bigger tires--went 35's. 2K miles ago I bought new tires and rims and bigger lift kit. All this and still no change in economy.
Which brings me back to the thread I was talking about with the "safe mode" in the computer that only allows you to get 11-13 mpg. I have friends with older PSD's that get near 20mpg with 35 inch tires, and was looking for the same.
Oh when I got the 37's I went to a speedometer shop and had the speedo calibrated on a dyno. It corrected the speedo/shift points,etc.
