My truck is an early 04, 4.10 gears, quad cab, short bed, 4x4, 4.10 gears. I'm not sure if my truck is just leveled, or has a lift front and back. I think its just leveled, but if it is lifted, its small, maybe 2", but I have stock tires. I could easily run a larger tire, but won't switch until my current tires are worn out.

I'd say I average around 15 mpg of mixed driving. I've never gotten much better than 17 mpg, but I've never gotten worse than 12 mpg, and that was towing. My experience is that my Cummins gets better mileage around town than a 1/2 ton gasser, and about the same on the highway. Keep in mind that lifts, lareger tires and good fuel mileage don't go well together.
