What mods do you have on the truck? Suspension, tire size, etc.

When was the last tuneup?

Have you checked your intake manifold plenum gasket condition?

Do you have a cat?

What are your other symptoms?

Those items you listed will not give you appreciable help. Avg mpg for these trucks in stock form with 3.55 gears is 12-16.

My gears are stock, not sure which exactly. My truck came with 17s originally. I was thinking of moving up to 410s though.

18 and 38's thats AMAZING. I'm thinking of lifting my truck to fit 37 to 40's not sure.

My 2002 Quad cab 4x4 with 201,XXXX miles k&n drop in filter fresh tune up gets a tree loving 9.8mpg. Stock everything except filter I'm looking into getting some different rims and tires and maybe a programmer to help with the fuel mileage.
