Are the rear springs stock? If so I'd suggest adding a leaf and/or leafspring overloaders instead of a taller block to minimize axle wrap.. which has got to be even worse than stock with those big tires.
Believe it or not I get around 15-16 mpg around town, thats reasonable driving. If I tow or had fun, it drops to 13-14 mpg. I want 37's or 38's in the future. I've got a huge space in the front wheel well I want to fill. Before the lift, tires, gearing, and with the old 5.0 I was getting 18 mpg, and 15-16 mpg when towing. But power SUCKED. Even though I lost 3-4 mpg its worth it for the amount of torque the 351w provides.
I forgot to mention: I bought the truck for $500, not running. Turns out the ignition module was bad. Lol. And I swapped in a 94 351w EEC with the J3 tuning port for the future.
