MPG?

What's a bone stock 6.0 with 6" or 4" lift on 35's running for mileage?

Nothing

theres alot of different factors but i would say you could expect 12-16. maybe a little better on the highway.

im getting on average 11-14 mpg with a 6" and 35's and the rest stock. Sometimes i may push 15 on the highway. could be worse could be better. just plan for a nice humming sound running down the road. To me it was worth it. It gives it a nice look.

With the mixed driving I do, I'd probably go with 4.56 gears. Last truck on 35's had them and I was happy with it's power.

Dunno then. My last rig was an F150 with the 4.6 and it ran close to stock with the 4.56's.

No lift.... Stock to 285/75/r16 I got about the same. 13-14 in town on summer fuel. 16-18 if I kept it 65 or less on the road. With the tires in the siggy on summer fuel 12-14 and 16.5 is my best on the hwy driving about 70 which is the same rpms I was stock tires at 65. The last 3 tanks I've dipped down to 11 in the city but I'm guessing winter fuel has something to do with that. I don't have a lift and I hand calculate my tanks. I also fill to the spout and use 2 stroke oil.
