2WD or 4WD?
Have a good friend with a 2005 3V 5.4L crewcab shortbed. It has 3.73 gears, the 5R110 auto, and is an XLT trim 2WD truck. His in-town mileage is 11-13, and on the highway empty, he gets 14-17. Towing his 30+' enclosed racecar trailer (9950lb GVWR), he gets 8-10mpg @ 65 mph.
A 4WD would use a bit more, but I'd say maybe 1 mpg less in the same situations.

well, if you plan on 1 mpg less than what I posted above-you should be covered, and won't be surprised.
