    True, but if you got a Front end off of another truck in a salvage yard, that would be a good percentage of the money you saved. Me and my friend got a 14 bolt out of a Salvage yard and it only cost him $100.

    Depends what state you live in but pretty much walk away if they
    are charging you 4800 or more out the door. I know tax rates play
    a role.

    The thread question just depends on personal preferences, but I will
    say this, I love my SC and don't regret it at all. So much more
    responsive to drive. I think those who haven't been in a
    supercharged truck don't know what they are missing. There are
    cheaper lifts out there to augment the investment in the SC.

    Mine has dropped 1MPG
    I just got in on the ultragauge group buy so
    I will have more accurate numbers, but my
    calculations thus far have a minimal decrease
    unless I am hard on the throttle.
