      A- a nice ride; a very nice ride indeed. How much do you figure you have invested in your mods? Are those your original tires? If not what do have on there now?

      not as much as he'll save with gas prices and getting 30 MPG!

      very nicely done Aldive, I am impressed, funny thing is all this time I thought you had the OHV not the SOHC!!
      is the SOHC more efficient then the OHV?

      You are, without a doubt, the undisputed God of Gas Mileage. Even if I drive calmly I get around 22-23 mpg.

      But can we get some more pictures? :)

      heheh. Yes, about 7 mpg worth. I have worked on my mileage for 5 years on my OHV and I have only achieved 23 mpg highway.

      Interesting choice of the Optima Yellow Top over the Red Top. I guess with the extra accessories the yellow top is more appropriate in your truck.

      LOL yea mine is the same way. I thought it was the result of my raging road stress, and it may be, but at least I'm not alone. Can we see a pic of the billet gas lid? Looks good.
