If I leave the current 33s with the leveling kit and use the flashpaq to tune the truck for mileage, will I see a decent jump in mileage or not? Im torn on the importance of the tuner...

From my personal experience, no you won't see a jump in MPG. I have an Economy Tune on my Diablo and it doesn't really do much, it adjust shift points a bit to help squeeze out some extra MPG's out of the truck, and in the end I averaged MAYBE 1 or 2MPG's better than normal. The best way to get gas mileage out of your truck is to just drive like a grandpa when you can, and cruise on the highway doing 65. A tuner is really there to help you boost performance and get the most out of everything...

Yep, ^^^what Blue said^^^. The changes in transmission shift points is to maximize the power band of the engine. I actually got worse mileage with the economy tune and when I baby it, a little better mileage in the performance tune.

well there's a convenient hole already in the bottom of the truck where the jack bolts down under the passenger seat that you could use. I'm not sure if there's another grommet under the cab for you to run a wire up into...
