I mostly say this because mine is broken and I want an excuse to tear it off completely..... LOL


I agree that won’t see any noticeable mpg difference in city or heavy mixed driving. I would think should see some amount of mpg improvement in longer amounts of highway driving. We will see....

Now will see if it improves the mpg at all....
So your truck had a Goatee and now you let the beard grow out? LOL

In a sports car it also improves handling as it helps to create more aerodynamic down force on the front of the car just like in NASCAR.

Now I'm not expecting huge mpg gains but will be interested to see how it effects my truck.

What did you do to your 6.7 this week?

Train horns. For safety ya know? When Prius driving slow-pokes want to get on the freeway at 40mph and I am running around 39,000 lbs and 54’ long, train horns seem like the solution. Now I can wake them before it becomes a problem. I went with WOLO polar express horns. WOW! Are they loud!

92sho16 Put 4 inch blocks on today, after putting a 1.5" leveling kit on the front it had a bit of lean towards the back. Next up some 295/65 All terrains.

redxjer I added airbags to the rear and the wireless one compressor system. Stiffened the ride a smidge, but it is so much nicer towing now.

joebuck Had a brief break in the rain the other day so I changed all 3 fuel filters on my truck, and did some battery maintenance
