    its all up to you man. one thing to remember is those style bumpers are heavy, so they will make the front squat, along with the mpg hit.

    tow mirrors is something I want as well, just havnt gotten done yet.

    Klutch,
    Tow mirrors are less aerodynamic than stock mirrors, so they'll impact mpg too -- granted, only a small amount, but still, a computer could measure it, I'm sure. My point? You're worried about mpg but want things that hurt mpg. Pick your poison ... or a balance thereof.

    I'm ok with losing some mpg to give my truck a better look. Im getting around 18 and I tend to have a lead foot. I chose to level it with 32s so I can keep maintaining decent mpg's. I know if I dont have the pedal to the medal I will still get around 16 or 17 with the tires, wheels, and a javelina bumper.
