Estimated MPG w/ 4 inch lift & 35s
 
Hey guys. This question is probably arbitrary when lifting but I'm curious as to what kind of gas mileage you guys are getting with 4 inch lifts and 35 inch tires. Thanks for the help.

Ha, I don't know what I'm supposed to be getting, but I'm anywhere 6-9 mpg. Megacab, 35 12.5 20, no lift, just 2inch lvling kit. I think mainly I get around 7-8 when driving on like a highway, city prob quite a bit less.

I've been wanting to ask this question myself, so thanks! Lol I wana hear what other guys are getting on here... Been wondering if adjusting gears would help with gas milage?

Adjusting your gears will help with your Gas mileage 7-8 thats ROUGH! Your gas mileage will also depend on how heavy your foot is. I'm going 7"lift with 35's and probably going to hit 13MPG area. But I try to keep the ECO light on as much as possible!

Yeah this my first truck, and I drive it like I drive my 350z. (well almost haha, after a few 200 dollar a week fuel ups I'm taking it easier). But Im starting to look into gear changes, I'm clueless in that department though :( lol

I hear you, im new to the truck world as well (I grew up with them my whole life) but first owned truck! What I did was browse and browse over and over through the forums and found ALOT of information. You'd look into a 4.10 gear ratio or even 4.56 (If you plan on going bigger tires in the future). It is a decent chunk of money but I hear Its 100% worth it.. I'll be getting mine done here soon just saving my pennies.. Its more expensive for 4wd than 2wd keep that in mind but im assuming you got a 4wd

Dam yep 4x4 here... Man that blows, I was hoping with my next chunk of pennies to get a lift and then the automatic steps/sound system :(... How big of a chunk for 4.10? :p I think I'll stay with 35s haha.

OP sorry for kinda hyjacking your thread, hope you needed this info as well haha.

No worries man. I'm just taking it all in. The more information I can gather the better!!!

Hopefully a lot of people will chime in on this. I really want a new 2500 (Hemi) with a small lift and 35's. If I can get 13mpg, I'll be happy.

16MPG is quite optimistic. Youll be looking more 9-12 from what most people report
