That is just one heck of a good looking truck. Very nice. I've been between a 4" or a 6" lift for mine and can't decide. Looking towards a 6" now. Do you tow anything heavy? If so how does it handle?

I still can't believe it - but it looks like my MPG has actually improved ! I typicaly have the same exact commute : 42 miles total roundtrip from home to work. I get gas on the same 7 day cycle and so far I've noticed it takes less gallons to fill up ! Also the gas gauge is showing me more fuel left after my week when I go to fill up.
I know the mileage on the odometer is off due to the larger tires , even though I have compensated with the SCT for shifts etc... ( according to 5star the speedometer will still be off if the tire difference is more than 5% of the original ), but the total distance traveled in my week has not changed so I am using that as a factor when calculating my mpg.
I think it may actually have to do with the effective gear now having changed and since 90% of my commute and week is highway maybe it's doing it more effieciently. I'm barely turning 1600/1700 rpm at 60 something.
If you went from a 30" stock tire to a 34.5" tire your speedometer is off about 15%. That means you are doing about 63MPH when the speedometer shows 55MPH. It also means your 42 mile round trip will only show about 35 miles on the odometer.
and yes, I love the TSR's ! IMO they are a great trire for the price and so far have really impressed me with both wet and dry traction. Also not as much road noise as would be expected. I'd definitly get them again
