EMB- didn't know that about the gears either, good info! Anyone know approx mpg difference? worse case scenario, order the truck and swap the gears if you want the 3.73s.

I'm getting 21.4 MPG all city driving but I'm going on a trip in a couple of weeks so I'll see how it does on the interstate and highways.

That looks a lot like my truck! And at 1/4 the price!

Did find out though that if you want the ext. cab you have to get 4.10 gears as opposed to 3.73 om mine. That alone will cost you a couple MPG.

my mileage sucks and i don't have a lift or anything cool to warrent the shitty mileage. You complain over mpg in the high teens. My last tank i got 15 and it's only getting worse.. i hate it so much.

Hey Tensilver, been around a while, don't post a lot(typing sucks). Lots short fill ups not entered at fuelly. If you run 70+ on your trip, look for about 28-29mpg. Have broken 30 a few times without towing, but most fill ups include a towing trip. Got rid of an 08 Ext cab Frontier V6/SE because of the LOW fuel mileage.
