02 Quad cab fuel mileage

Hi Guys
Been a die had Ford fan and thinking on switching .
Thinking on buying an 02 Quad cab 4X4 automatic ( not sure which rear end 3.73 or 4.10) What kind of fuel mileage are you getting . Are these as good as the 03 with the same set up,they are much louder for sure .

thanks

I get around 16 in town to 19 on the highway, I have 3.55's. sweet spot on the freeway is around 2K, over that and it will start drinking alittle heavier

The 24v's didn't come with a 3.73 unfortunately, only 3.55's or 4.10's. With that said. I have an 00 Reg. Cab, and I get anywhere from 12-15mpg fully loaded towing really heavy 15-18k. About 17-18 unloaded around town. and 19-23 unloaded on the freeway. Milage will really depend mostly on how you drive. A good friend of mine has an 01 quad cab long bed 6spd though, bone stock and he gets about 24mpg consistently, when unloaded on the freeway. 14-15 loaded towing stock trailers in the mountains (steep dirt roads, which don't do well for milage). It depends on what kind of driving you are doing, and how much you keep your foot in it.

What's the big deal with 3.73's? I thought the 3.55 and 4.10 covered enough ground.

Well, 4.10's are a touch low for my liking, and 3.55's are great, but I want 35's in which case They are a little higher than I'd like. Honestly, I'm just being a picky little brat, 3.55's do just fine. The only time I wouldn't want them is towing on the freeway, with 35's.

Yeah I see your point. 4.10's are really low for my liking. But if I get a one ton w/ a box ever, I'm probably gonna have the 4.10's just because I won't be going that fast and probably be off of the road a little. I do see your point though. 35's are a little big for my liking though, lol.
