I live in ND, so the highest I would probably see would be no where over 3500 - and that's pushing it.

Edit: Just did a google search, our highest point is 3,506 to which a part of the state I don't travel! So I'd say around 2,200'ish.

You MIGHT be able to get away with the 89 octane on the 91 tune. If your truck is lighter, say 2wd, reg cab, short bed, you could probably get away with it.
It is a quad cab 4x4 short bed, so I doubt I would. Suppose I can just play with the 91 with the short time I'm off, then switch it back to stock with the MDS off to get my moneys worth.
