Led86, I have almost the same truck as you only mine is a regular cab. I averaged about 12mpg before the cold air intake and I average almost 13mpg after I installed the cold air intake. She is a thirsty ole b*tch.

My 98 has just over 100 000 miles on it. when I got it a year ago it got 14MPG on a good day highway. I put a new cat on it last month and mileage went right up to 18 mpg. I still want to swap the o2 sensors and see what I get.

I know it keep tripping too high of a voltage on the after cat o2 sensor but after a few starts it goes away.

Mine only averages 12.5-13 mostly city driving. It's been a work truck since 2002 so it stays pretty full of tools. I've always wished I bought the 360 if I knew the mileage would suck this bad. Have gotten 15+ on highway when running highway tires, Had mud tires on back and got much worse.

BTW it's only 2wd

Well, my 360 is getting about 10-11 in town, 13 highway if there's any slope.
