I really want a new Hemi powered 2500 and am currently researching them. The plan is for a small lift and 35's. I will share a couple things from my experience with lifts and large tires. First, a lot of people freak out when they first figure their MPG's after adding taller tires. But they fail to realize that their figures are off if they didn't reprogram the computer so the speedometer/odometer is accurate. Also, at any given size an all terrian tire will usually give slightly better gas milage than a mud terrian. Also, tire/wheel weight and tread width will also affect milage/performance. A 325/60-18 is basically a 33x13.00 tire. A slightly narrower 33 inch tire (like a 285/65-18 or 305/60-18) will help your milage a little.
