Those #s are about the same for me towing a Sabre 36QBOK with a 2004 Chev 2500HD 8.1L. I added firestone air bag and inflated to 50PSI run very smooth. Actually tows better than the TT prior to the fiver. However, the stopping difference and height clearance take some getting used to.

04 F150 towing our 26BH Grey Wolf weighting around 6000lbs I usually see 10-10.5, I have gotten as good as 11 and as bad as 9 mpg. But for a slightly lifted truck with larger wheels and tires (33" tall X 13 wide), and the way that I tend to drive sometimes I am happy.

Got 7.5 average (hand caculated) last summer going to Indiana averaging 60mph with the old 08 Ram 2500 Megacab 4x4 hemi with 3.73's pulling our V-Lite and just DW and me. We will see in June how the Sooper Dooty does going to Tennessee with 4 people. The Dodge weighed abit over 6700 with a full tank and DW and I in it, the SD weighs 7368 with no one in it and a full tank.

If you want gas mileage here it is. Stopping power not there.
