If you get CAI mise well get a catback exhaust too! I got a quite catback I dont like loud exhaust. And i would recommend getting a tune. I used Diablo Lew tune and the truck drives better and has better power management. stock I got 14.1-15.1 mpg on 20 inch wheels and 33 inch tires. After the tune I get 19 on a windy day uphill and 22 on a nice day uphill. And pulling my trailer the truck does down shift and upshift a million times going up grades. It just pulls harder and its actually nice to pull my trailer now! Black bear is another guy who people say do a good job. I cant speak on his tunes as for I never had one by him but people say thats another good guy to use. But I am very pleased with my tune from Diablo Lew! Thats about the only other mod I would do especially since your doing a CIA unless you tune your truck and get a exhaust and tune it really just there for looks and not performance!

Thanks for the heads up! I don't want loud exhaust either, what did you go with?

What? You must be selling this or are leaving out some details. Your telling us you picked up 7 mpg with a tune? I think you are trying to make it sound better then it is by using your stock city mpg (14.1-15.1) and comparing it to the highway mpg after the tune (22). You aren't going to find much more mpg from these things, stock they are tuned so heavily for mpg and reliability it is hard to find mpg let alone 7. Compare apples to apples please to not mislead people. Your truck stock should have done 22 mpg highway. Are you running E rated tires?

theres always that one guy on the forums.

 

This was a apples to apples comparison, same route everyday to work 120 miles round trip. Highway and city mix. Before tune on this trip I got 14.1 -15.6 mpg. Same trip after the tune I got 19-22 I can post pictures of the cluster if you want! I Dont sell anything I was just telling him.

 

Diablo lew tunes, arent a performance chip or a "one setting fits all" tune. Its a program you log data and send to him and he creates a specific tune for your truck using data collected by user. (knock retard, air fuel mix ration, shift timings anything and everything). He changes everything from A-Z to make the engine more efficient. With the correct add ons to your truck he can tune it even better. Lots of people have had similar results to me but most drive with a heavier foot since it has more power but drive it in normal use and you will get similar results. Im not telling the guy he can expect 22 mpg like me by any means as for the environment plays a role in that but if he lives in oklahoma I would bet $100 on it he would get the same mileage as me!

 

Tires are toyo open country 33x12

do your own research.

 

here is one under testimonials i found

 

MPG: Before:12.8mpg, now with tune:17.1mpg (wow!)... 0-60 2WD: Before: 8.2seconds (bone stock), now with tune: 7.8 flat... I also run a few dirt drags on a 200ft dirt strip... Best 0-60 in 4LOW has been 5.4seconds! Awesome job man!!

MBRP 3" Cat Back, Single Side Exit, AL its a little deeper on start up and idle than the stock exhaust (just a little, not much) and down the highway or high RPMs you cant hear it at all! Get the performance without the noise! double whammy!

Got my towing mirror installed and wired up! Way better than the stock little ones if you ask me! especially pulling my 28ft car hauler!

PS install took me 3 hours, I figured it take me 30 minutes but its never that easy right!

was plug and play up to a point. I had to hardwire running lights, cargo lights, and the reverse led lights but yes power, heated, and turn signal all work. I just had to find the correct wires to tap into for the extra features towing mirrors have.

Starting all over again, out with the 2014 and back with a 2016. This time I stepped down from the SLT to SLE, so it has a few less options but I don't mind yet but I'll admit, I enjoyed the heated steering wheel and the mirrors angling down. So far I have only tinted the front windows to match the rear and some how the muffler fell off so it now has a 3" pipe in place but the butterfly valve is hose clamped open and the resonator is still in place.

 

In case anyone is interested,
