Default 2 things, JUST 2 things

Haven't filled any personal stuff out yet, this is my second Ranger. Just traded a '94 4.0L 4X4 supercab spalsh for an '02 4.0L 4X4 FX4 supercab.

Other than keep my foot out of the gas. If you were to do two things to improve mpg, what would they be? And would the changes really add enough to be worth them?

Thanks,
Greg

1) Keep the tires properly inflated
2) Stay updated on routine maintenance

or are you talking about aftermarket mods?

Start with upgrading the basics, I am currently doing a build on my truck ident. to yours.
I would say oversized tires with the wrong compounds make a big difference at this point. I'll be posting my build up and the final results when I get it all done.

They came with the truck- too noisy for me.
