Just got gas. 1 day of my normal driving and 1 driving slower has bumped me to 12.5. Maybe 15 wont be too hard to hit.

Once you get something else, would something not that big address your actual needs?

Eh i mean technically i could work out of a single cab ranger, ive done it before but its a huge pain to unload for this job and end up needing something. Or finishing a project and getting a small job same day and not having material. Im kinda looking for a single cab long bed 80s chevy 2wd with the diesel. Or the new chevy vans with the little 2.8 duramax. They supposedly get 25-30 on the highway.

That's another good point. Once a friend asked me to do the math to see how taller his truck would sit with a different set of tyres, as the main reason for him to get those tyres was to increase ground clearance while not messing with the suspension, and he was absolutely unaware of how different tyre sizes can have a comparable effect to swapping the differential gearing.
