Thanks for your help.

I have only owned my truck now for 6 weeks and have put little milage on it with most of the milage in town so far. However, it will primarily be putting on more HWY milage in the futur as it's main intension is to haul our camper and pull the boat. Then that will be the test of what kind of MPG it will get!

Preformance mods will only help a small $ amount if you can keep your right foot lite on the go pedal. At that they will never pay for them self.
I will agree with you on this. I've priced all the Mod options and nothing really influenced me enough to spend that amount of money and not reap the benifit in savings over a satified short period of time. I can do well enough alone by being aware of my driving habits.
