My main complaints are it lacks a toolbox, the serpentine is worn out, the e-brake is busted, and I need new seats (I get a steel bar rammed in my back every time I drive).

That's pretty true. You have to hit the gas to get the 2.3 going with tires that size. I'm getting about 18-19 combined at the moment.


Also, I did 284 miles on my first tank with 31's. Drove around 70 on the highway to the mountains for a fishing trip, averaging 2200-2500 RPMs, then going up to 6,000 feet, 24 miles of off-road trail, then cruising down the mountain with probably about 100 lbs of gear, plus 3 people in the truck. 284 miles with 16 gallons is 17.75 mpg. And I drive very slow now that I have 31" tires.

It's constantly searching for gears on the highway. Between overdrive and out of it. It's terrible. I'll be taking the Silverado all weekend to work. Will be cheaper for me then my truck. Gonna be worse when I pull the motor and turbo it.
