I almost NEVER take it on the highway, have oversized tires and 4x4. I'm happy if I average 14 to 15.

I feel your pain. I am getting about 19mpg with 31" tires, a 2.5" lift, and the air dam removed. Apparently, removing the air dam actually helps with fuel economy. But yeah, 19mpg isn't great, but I do have the V6.....and it's better than my last truck (2006 Silverado).
