I have 10" lift and 37s with 4.56s....I usually avg 13ish-15ish, all depending on how I drive. Granted this is all 50/50 city/hwy driving and hwy kills my mpg. I havent got below 13ish since I got the gears. Also everytime I get in the truck I kill TC and put it in 5th. Just took this on the way to work, probably one of my better tanks....
FYI buddy with 6' and 37" Toyos and 3.92s stays 9-10mpg

Candy if I had the money I'd go with a setup like yours but I don't. Lol. My stock truck right now is getting 14.9 so im guessing I'd go down to around 11ish.

My dealership is still strong in the Mopar lift being the only warranty safe lift. So I'm still undecided which way I'm going to go.

Thanks for the input fellas

Wow, I baby my crew cab 4x4 with stock 17's and I get 11.5mpg. What's the secret? 2 more MPG would be prefered if I can get it. I'm hoping the mileage will go up after breakin period is over, but not crossing my fingers.

Something aint right there my friend. I live in a terribly hilly area in SoCal and my truck never dips below 14.5. I have full exhaust (long tubes/catback) and my MPG actually went down just a little because of my loss in low end power, but Ive never been anywhere near down there. Towing across the country i still averaged 10.5.


What gear ratio are you running?

I've only put one tank of gas on my truck since I put my 4" lift with 35's on and I got ~17.5 L/100kms, or 13.4 MPG. I have 3.92's

Default fuel calculation

I think that it is difficult to know what fuel mileage you get when you run bigger tires on it, as the computer calculates mileage based on distance traveled and fuel consumed. Distance traveled is off by a certain percentage when you go to bigger tires and then the fuel calculator in the truck, and even when hand calculated unless you use the actual miles traveled (as per a GPS).

My last truck, a 2010 F350 diesel with 35" tires and tuner, was a pig and the fuel mileage calculator in the dash was not correct at all after I installed a tuner (fuel mapping, tables, etc.). And when hand calculating, the tire size was off and the odometer was off, so if I wanted to calculate the mileage, I needed to use a correction factor that I determined by using a GPS vs. my odometer.

so, correct me if I am wrong, when changing tires on the new Dodge, is the odometer somehow remaining accurate?

I am new to the dodge, just installed a leveling kit and am thinking of going bigger. I thought the 3.92 gearing would be good for 35" tires.

the tuner on your ford would not correct for tire size? Ive never heard of a tuner that wasnt able to do that.



Tuners for the dodges allow for change in tires size in the compuyter so odometer readings stay accurate
