4x4 valance really works!
ok so when the truck was bought, it was taken to our upfitter and plow was put on. rather than cutting the bracket opening out of the valance, the shop just removed the air dam to make it easier on them. well i seen it in the garage the other day and said heck i will trim it and put it on the truck. I read it affects fuel mileage and mine is very poor(due to mainly stop and go city type driving) so its worth a shot. Now before this my lie o meter was at mid 11's averaged out and when i hand calculated my fuel mileage it was anywhere from 11-12 mpg. I slapped the 4x4 valance on and went about the week and noticed my lie-o-meter slowly going up so i decided to reset it and not change any driving habits. after a tank and a half of fuel the lie-o meter has averaged out to about a steady 14.8, hand claculated at 14.59 mpg! needless to say, im pumped! thats a huge increase and considering ive been losing out for 40k miles thats a lot of money. best i have ever gotten was a highway trip when we took the quads i got 13.8 hand calculated without the air dam so i should do better next time. this next tank Im gonna try some REV-X distance fuel treatment and see what happens.
Im running H&s mini maxx on the hot dam file in the stock setting (turned all the way down), 5" flo pro and AFE stage 2 dry filter. I have a flo pro EGR delete kit waiting to go on with elbow and cold side pipe just havent had time to get it done. this was on stock size BFG AT.
