    Thanks for the reply D Roc
    I've got the same 3.55, engine, body and color which is why I sought you out. I get inspired eveytime I look at your truck. I really just want to fill out my wheel wells a little.

    i drive 147 miles daily round trip for work, 5 miles of that is in town driving. cruise set on 68-70 and i was getting 20-21 avg mpg on highway. with 2" level it really didn't change to much to be noticeable, but i had my exhaust put on at the same time so i liked hearing the pipes sing i lost maybe 2 mpg. with the 295's installed and driving conservative im getting 16-17 mpg.

    i am running 3:55's in rear end, nitro filled tires @ 40psi, amsoil fluids, motorcraft air filter, magnaflo exhaust, with very little elevation change.

    keep in mind that elevation, temps, tire WIDTH, tire WEIGHT, rim Weight, psi, fluids, and take offs from stop play a major role in mpg.

    i plan to go with 285/75r18 toyos next time, not because im disappointed with the nitto 295's but i want to try them both out. hope this helps.

    i work with a lady who has same year, same rear end, 35x12.5r20, with 6" lift getting 17 mpg.

    Thanks..i think it matches very well.

    I think it was black metallic grey and a lighter grey. I told him I had the sterling metallic f150 and he actually suggested that metallic grey for me. He just made them a few weeks ago so he should remember.

    I was dead set on getting a 4x4. I have always wanted one it only took me 35 years to get it. I really wanted the FX4 model but I couldn't justify the extra cost. Plus the Off road package gets you the same shocks, rear end and locker as the FX4. The chrome has grown on me.

    I've got a 2010 Screw, but want the 4X4 bad enough to trade it in already. Last time I did the finance through Ford to get the bonus cash and refinaced the next day at my credit union for a better rate.

    Thanks, I love the color too. The dealer tried to talk me into several other colors but I was pretty dead set on what I wanted.

    Just a FYI Ford Credit's offer was crap over 8% The dealer was able to get me 1.9% from a local credit union.
