Brandon,

That's great! I felt the same way when I got my truck. I enjoy this site and have learned quite a few things, even at my age (53). I just didn't want you to not be able to enjoy your truck. You will see a lot of different setups on this forum. Everyone doing what he or she feels suits their needs. Every little thing you do to your truck you do for a reason. Have fun modifying your truck because you will never have it completely finished. There will always be 1 more thing you can do. Good luck in all your endeavors. And yeah the 20's are probably the biggest factor affecting your mpg's.

I fill up twice a week, spending nearlyI $150/wk or $600 a month in gas

I honestly think that hauling ass on the highway and racing from stoplight to stoplight is something better left to 16-year olds and people who dont care about money. If it grows on trees at your home, fantastic.

I could see though if you drive 10k mi/yr or less, then worrying about gas mileage is stupid. I got my 2011 on Feb 11th and I turned 10,000 on tuesday this week so mileage is a biggy.
