I have a 2004 Dodge Dakota 2WD 3.7 V6 Auto with about 91.5k miles on it. The gears in the rear are 3.55. The bottom line is this...the gas mileage sucks and it doesn't tow very well. I do a lot of city driving and average about 14-15 mpg. I can squeeze 18-19 mpg out of it on the highway. Towing gives me around 11-13 mpg. I can't afford a truck payment...and I want to lift it. Now here is the challenge. What can I do to improve the gas mileage (keep the lift in mind) and improve the towing while keeping it a reliable vehicle that can last me 2-3 years to come? Would appreciate the suggestions!!
