    gas question

    i know trucks arent for gas mileage and i drive one of the better economy trucks in a 06 4 banger canyon, but i want a bigger truck with more power and room. i'm looking at around 04 to 07 gmc or chevy with a 4.8 or 5.3. when you guys arent beating on them too much and just cruising around, what kind of mileage do you average?

    The 2WD helps a ton. You lose a few MPG with a 4WD vs. a 2WD.
