13mpg, holy moley. Is that your daily driver? Do you go fourwheelin' every weekend? If not, maybe pull those big meats and run some street rubber for better mileage.

A rig like that is the answer to a lot of winter weather, but the rest of the year you're paying through the nose for capacity you don't use.

I notice that with a lift, you probably have a long reach to get anything up onto the roofrack. If you don't ever use it, pull it. It isn't a lot of help, but some's better than none, right?

Lead or follow. Either is fine.
