They ain't too different. 06 has bigger cooling fan and yes a different program and the 6 speed, where i have the 5 speed....you have a 2nd overdrive gear in yours.
Now granted i have leveled my front and then lifted the rear about 3.5" and stuck some 18"wheels with 34.5" tires on soooo... empty and adjusted for my tire difference i get about 13.5 and the couple times i towed my 36qbok i got 9-10 mpg.
Now when i throw my stock wheels and tires on (245/75/16) believe it or not empty i can get 18mpg if i keep my foot out of it. (Stock tires and wheels are 35lb lighter per wheel tire than my bigger ones) And i put my little tires on when i brought the camper home in Nov. And i think my tow mileage was about the same, about 9.8-10mpg but i was also going into 20-30+mph winds.
I run all stock everything except exhaust, because it was on there when i got it 7 years ago. But ac delco air, fuel, spin on tranny etc.

Heres a couple pics. I know not a real practical tow setup with bigger tires, but when i did it, i still had my International semi that i hauled heavy stuff with, and we didn't have a camper then.
