Please report back on the mileage decrease and the change in ride. Like the tire not sure if the trade-offs are worth it for the LTs for my driving.

Why would it be worth much to carry 10 more gallons around? Unless towing a bunch you should have a range of 500 miles.

Do some searching and reading. Not much to gain but noise. Ford did a good job, you already have a very good CAI that was installed at the factory.

Spend your money on a tune.

Went from 8' to two 6.5'ers to 5.5' screw and don't regret it. Parking is easier and they look fine to me. I do have three trailers 8', 15' and 20' so that may make it less of a trade off for me.

Sounds like you need to do the research on tirerack.com and the manufacturers websites. I doubt anyone has checked them all in both sizes and can give a definite answer.

LTs have more plys and thicker sidewalls. They can take more abuse on rock roads and off road. Typically the...

Downsize the blocks and spacers at the same time. The narrower tires will throw less gunk up on the side of your truck.

Should be an improvement in several ways.

I have run two set of the BFGs, each set lasted about 35,000 miles and were good in all conditions including 6" snow. The only thing I didn't like was that they picked up a threw gravel.

If it was mine I would add half a quart after 5000 miles, and then change at 7500 miles. In 100,000 miles that would amount to less than 7 quarts added for a cost of less than $50.00.

It is a "Limited", limited to buyers that are willing to be limited to the 3.5. Resale will probably suffer since the biggest V8 isn't part of the package.
