I don't have 4wd but I was getting about 19.5 at average of 60mph on a dailey 50 mile commute with no stops. Dropped to about 16.5 with about the same commute but at 75mph and a bed rack. Back up to about 18mpg at 75mph with my CAI. Don't know yet with the new exhaust.

Mods: Thule Xsporter 422XT bed rack, Underrail Rhinolining, MOPAR class IV Hitch, DIY CAI, Aero Turbine 3030.
Future Mods/Wishlist: Tuner, Daystar Comfort Ride 1.5" Leveling kit, Nerf Bars, Police style push bumper with light guards, KC or Thule trail lights, HID projector lights.
