This is running the programmer and good fuel. Not too windy either. I get about 13 around town. The new brakes helped the mileage a lot! The old ones were dragging pretty badly. Done your brakes yet Brad?

[quote="redbull"]Wow, here's what I got on my way home from Lethbridge last week in my 2005 Ram 1500 Hemi. Running a Superchips tuner with the XS Mileage program at the moment.

On the Flat. 20.4 miles per gallon = 11.53 l/100km



Downhill!

But... US gallons? or imperial? Looks like the button on your display console says US?

New suspension for the Tundra. Well new to me. Used coils up front and new in the rear. I am going to use my Bilsteins set to the lowest level. I should have them in by the end of the day. I am waiting on some greasable bolts before I install the rears.

OME 886 coil on the left, OEM coil on the right



Deavers for the rear:

Not sure what I like more, the poly bushings on the steering or the OME coils. Both improved the truck DRASTICALLY. I went up over an inch in the front which is OK as the 255 rubbed a little under compression. The steering is tight and controlled. This truck is finally turning into what toyota should have built...

I also installed a 1" dif drop.

It doesn't look a whole lot different but it drives WAY better. 35psi in the rear bags and it sits level. I hope the new deavers give it some rake.

deavers are awesome, but will look like crap after one winter up here. mine looked like rusted out springs off an 84 chev after the first winter. A little paint fixes it up though

Deaver springs are in. 1.5" of lift with 400lbs extra capacity. I LOVE the ride of this truck with the OME/Deaver combo. Air bags are at 5psi. I also did a u-bolt flip at the same time as I had an extra set of hardware lying around. Measurements are from the ground to the wheel well.

Front:
Stock~34"
OME 886 with Bilstein 5100s set at the lowest-255/85R16 toyo MT~38"

Rear
Stock~36"
Deaver 1.5" lifted-255/85R16 toyo MT~ 38.5"

Out with the old:


Side by side:


in with the new:

I just got the speed calibration unit in from Superlift. A special thanks to Victor Camperi from Findlay Toyota for the instructions on the install for my 06 DC.

unit placed in the glove box for easy access. The wife and I just got back from a cruise on the highway and it is perfectly calibrated. The shifts are nicer and OD holds better. It will be interesting to see if the MPG improve.

Thanks to JP for coming to Regina on the weekend and helping me load the newest addition to the Tundra. Hopefully I will get it painted to match over christmas. It cleaned up pretty good after I got all the cat piss washed out of the inside. One window was popped out and the channel was a little bent. Not sure how we didn't see that when we picked it up. Guess that what happens when something is covered in snow. One new gasket and it looks brand new.
