Default Need Help 09 sprt leveled with 35"x 12.50x20 M.T MPG

Hi Guys, I'm new here,
Tomorrow I'm scheduled to look at a 09 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab, Hemi Auto, Sport Pkg. 35,000 miles it has a 2.5 Lift/Leveling Kit, 35"x 12.50x20 M.T . Gooseneck Hitch, Brake Controller, Air Bag's Spring Assist Rear. Like New Condition,

Original owner has not reprogrammed to accommodate for the larger tires.

What kinda of MPG's should I see or expect from this set up....
and what kind of MPG's should I expect after throwing the superchips at it.

appreciated.
Thanks

Well I pulled the trigger, Truck is just super clean!!! I pick it up in the morning from my bank, it was sort of a hassle because the last owner was behind on payments. So I will finish everything tomorrow! first thing TAKE OFF THE UGLY VENT VISORS and then hit 4wheel parts for the superchip,

On my stock truck I went from 14-16mpg to 16-18mpg in rural driving with the superchips on 87 tune. On the high way I didn't notice much, this is Imperial gallons(4.5l). This was all hand calculated as the computer can be off up to 2mpg either way from my experience.
