    The trucks are pretty much all the same, they sholud all get about the same milage as well. If someone is getting 11 MPG out of a new diesel motor I'd say he had it floored every where he went. I don't think I could get that low no matter hard I tried.
    On a side note, I had an '05 F150 FX4 with the 5.4 motor. I averaged about 12 MPG or so. It was a good truck, it jus had problems pulling a heavy load. Under a load she got 6 to 8 MPG on a good day. If I didn't have a big trailer I'd still have her.

    well I actually wanted the z71 when I went to the dealer but they didn't have any in stock. Then i saw the truck that I have now already lifted with two tv's in the headrest. So I said what the hell. I currently have 33's but im going on 35's after I get the programmer but it doesn't feel that bad it still has some pony's

    No porgramer. I don't need one. There is a lot of power. To me, it's not worth the trade off damage risk to install one. I'm only hauling 8K pounds, I've pulled 10K pounds and still no power problems. I don't recomend aftermarket programers. GM spends millions of dollares in design for these motors. When you affect one part of the truck you can affect another part and can possibly weaken it. Example: You increase your motor power by another 50 hp, your transmission's high gears weren't designed to mate with that kind of load, metal scrapes, fins weaken and the potentional problem can present itself.
    My recomendation would be to buy the truck with the power suitable for your needs. Small mods are OK but if the motor needs another 25 or 30% power or more you probably got the wrong truck for your needs. Hopefully any mods you need to do aren't big enough to affect anything down the line. If they are consider beefing up down line systems.
    Where do you live?

    I get 10 to 14 MPG towing an 8,000 pound trailer. Unloaded I get between 16 to 24 MPG. My average economy is between 16 to 18. My driving is about 50% highway and 50% street for these averages. 24 MPG is at 65 MPH, any higher than that and it drops down a lot.
  9. The pic was taken were jeeps unload to it a rock trail call bald mountain witch is above shaver..The pro comp programmer I have is ok I hear edge makes a really good one...I dont really like this new 5.3 motor its not as snappy as the older 5.3...I think im going to go back to a diesel soon...How do you like your chevy?
