    I just installed mine last weekend, so far it's really cool. Just give yourself a few minutes to set it up right to your truck (engine size, tank size, larger tires, etc.)

    I'd give 'em a call and make sure they have one. The Dyno Shop looked like a fun place to go.

    I spent two summers in Oceanside with my best friend and her husband... he was stationed in Oceanside so I always went through Carlsbad. We always ate at this awesome mexican restaurant there before we'd head to SD for Padres games. Life's rad in Carlsbad!

    Soon after I got my truck I drove from the Bruce Nuclear plant in Tiverton, ON, to Thunder Bay, ON. About 16 hours of a drive and the truck loved it. I loved the way the truck drove too. Had to use 4HI a bunch of times due to snow/slush on the highway, but no problems at all - except a speeding ticket that my buddy got on the way home when I let him drive :rolleyes: Overall it was a comfortable drive and she had no issues with the long hill climbs up around Lake Superior.

    You usually do not get an accurate MPG reading until the 3rd tank (fillup).

    I averaged 18.6 mpg driving to and from Pismo last weekend.
