With the 3.42 gears that I still have, I am getting about 15 mpg with totally mixed driving. Everything from offroading hunting to highway miles, but mostly backroads.

I was wondering when you put the 33's on your truck did you have to do anything to the body like cut the wheel wells and did a 2 inch body lift make a big difference???? i have a 03 s-10 crew cab that i am wanting to lift but dont want to spend the $1700 on doing it

Looks great, I always thought Chevy should have produced the ZR2 pkg. on the crew cabs instead of the odd ZR5 pkg. You have about the closest thing to a crew cab ZR2 there is. Looks awesome, love the green.

I agree. A crew cab ZR2 would have been great. I would have bought that over my Jimmy.

The truck looks bad @ss, nice work! :cool:

thats pretty good if you ask me. alot better than most think. and it might actually go up to when you regear, as you seem to do alot of city/off-highway driving.

you plan on re gearing? i am with mine once these tires wear out and i get my 34's

EDIT: nevermind, i looked at the pretty pictures without actually reading anything.

woah!

I haven't been on here in a while... thanks for all the compliments!

CantCme53:
The flares were custom made and yes we did cut the fender wells. The 2" BL makes a noticeable difference in height, but didn't change the driving characteristics too much since the center of gravity didn't change as much as it would have if I would have done a suspension lift. With the fenders opened up and the BL, I was able to go from 30 x 9.5 tires to 33 x 10.5s. I have invested about $1500 in the upgrade (tires, wheels and all) which is less than half of the cost of a suspension lift alone.
