    You are going to burn a lot more fuel with the big block. What size tires are on the lifted truck? Gear ratio? What kind of lift is it?

    It has 35s that are pretty much brand new and ya the fuel will be a concern but it's not going to be a daily driver it's a truck for camping and just things like that I think the lift is a pro comp it has traction bars and all the works. The truck was owned by a older guy that spent top dollar taking care of the truck.

    It also has the 4:10 rear ends in it which works out to a 3:50 with the tire size difference.

    How many miles on each? Looks like you would be getting the better part of the trade here. Even if you decide to sell it, chances are you would get more money for his!
