Fuel Mileage Tips??

Howdie Yall, Well thanks to all the tips and ideas from this site my truck is running great. I have a 2003 F350 4x4 crew cab with the 6.0 automatic. I have done the Zoodad and had the PCM Updated at ford to fix the rough idle in the morning. They checked it all over and said everything was great on it. I took off the Cat a couple weeks ago, so except for that and the Zoodad its stock. I was wondering if any one had some tips on how to get some better mileage out of it. Its getting about 14.5 now, which i know i sound greedy wanting better than that out of a one ton 4x4, but i see folks on this site saying they get good mileage and they have lifts and big tires. So if any one has any tips for me that would be great. Thanks again..

I think a tuner is the best option, my truck is much lighter than yours and a 2wd, but I can get 25mpg on the highway, and averaged 17.9 on last tank, 50% city 50% highway.
