My family has a 99 2500hd, same body style as yours, and it is definitely a gas hog, 12-13 mpg driving, 8-9 mpg towing. With something that inefficiently designed, small things like that won't make much of a difference until the low hanging fruit is taken care of: smaller engine, much taller geared transmission, skinnier taller tires, aerocap in the rear, and an airdam would be necessary to see any major FE gains. Other than that the #1 way to improve FE would be driving style, mazimizing coasting time in neutral or with DFCO. EOC if it was a manual.
2013 Toyota Prius C (my car) 60 MPG
2015 Mazda 3 iTouring Hatchback w/ Tech Package (wife's car) 40 MPG
