    i am in the process of buying a new truck. I have narrowed it down to a 2001-02 2500hd 6.0l crewcab. just wanted to get some opinions from you guys.

    I have a friend who has lifted 01 2500hd crew. has a 6" lift, 3" body lift, 4:56 gears and 38" tires. any clue what type of gas mileage he is getting. he claims he is averaging 14 city/why. I am not really looking for a lifted truck but he is in the process of moving overseas and i can pick up this truck for dirt cheap. its a very clean truck with only 58k on it.

    just wanted to get your opinions...

    I would say he's getting 10mpg city, 14mpg highway. This is assuming he's not mashing the throttle. Already not very fuel efficient (stock is around 12 city, 17 highway) and the lift/tires/gears isn't helping.
