4:88 gears about 9mpg empty and 5.9 to 6.3 towing

The truck is 5 weeks old and already has 8500 miles

They darn sure need a bigger fuel tank, stopping every 200 miles is terrible

Matthew, be sure to stop by, lunch is on me. I have not taken any pictures yet but the boat looks great. Warparty, I agree 1000%. They need a 50 gallon tank. I think I am going to take the 4:88s out and replace with 4:30s. Should see a 3-400 rpm decrease. Truck has awesome power but unless you are pulling 22-25,000 pounds the 4:88s are not needed. Thanks for all of the replys. Roger

I know you are, just didn't want someone else to have false hopes when buying a new one
