I'm getting 13-14 right now. I have a 2.5" lift with 33". no extra heavy stuff either. I am just trying to improve it before I drive across country into north east Canada.
No chip, just the aev procal and the gears. Bumper doesn't weigh that much so it's not a huge difference in weight.

Depend on how you drive too and where you drive

I know right? Got pretty lucky on this one. Another guy actually wanted to trade the same winch, and an optima yellow top battery for the rc. But his **** was way more beat up than this guys haha. Cant wait to test it out! Going up wheeling this saturday

Received my Warn Cast Iron Hawse Fairlead for my steel cable line. Sucker is heavy! Well made product.



Also used my christmas present today working on the air filter and throttle body cleaning. Its an LED light and can rotate 360 degrees and pivot. Makes for a good hood light!

Maybe a little bit. It didnt really idle rough or anything, but im sure others with more miles would notice it alot. I also changed my air filter for the first time with a K&N reusable filter. The old one was like a shop vac filter, very dusty. Im sure that there is a little bit better gains, but nothing by what I can feel. I just feel better knowing that it is cleaned up alot!
