buy a honda . actually, 6 mpg is pretty low, but u are running 33s which hurts ur mpgs probably more than anything. regearing would help a lot, probably to 3.92s or 4.10s if u plan on running 35s. a good tune up, making sure ur brakes arent dragging and that everything is greased, and going easy on the go pedal will help out as well. i have also heard that synthetics in everything will help mpg as much as 2 mpg, but i havnt tested this yet.
Make sure all the fluids are where they are supposed to be and fresh, including the diffs. A tune up would probably help too. 6 mpg is low, even with 33's and stock gears. Make sure that your carb is adjusted properly too.
