F250/F350 mileage diferences

Folks, the wife has an 05 F350 DRW FX4 long bed Crew cab
I have a CC F250 FX4 with the mods listed in my sig.

I get 16-22 on the highway and a 16 mpg average and I have a heavy foot, she drives like a little old lady and cant get over 17 on the highway and is averaging 13.2.

I have 58K and she has 28K, I drive a mix of city and highway she drives the same, about 1/3 of the miles I do.

What gives? thats a big difference in mileage?

The mods help yours and the DRW hurts hers?

She is sitting next to me and found no humor in it at all.
She said WHATEVER as I typed this too.

haha Her's having 4:10's is the biggest factor, and the motor being new. It'll take a little time to get better mileage. I can squeeze 18 out of my 7.3 if I drive right, and that is with the same gears and duals.
