I personally have not gone this route (yet), but if you go to the "Dodge Talk" Forum and look under the 3rd gen Hemi Rams, it is noted by quite a few members that installing 4.56 gears :eyepoppinINCREASES:eyepoppin mileage. The Hemi Rams come stock w/ a 3.92 ratio; going to the 4.56's gets the mass rolling w/ less fuel and because of the deep 5th gear (2nd OD), it is claimed that cruising at normal hiway speeds is not affected. I don't know how deep the OD is on an F150, but it may be worth looking into.
