What is Ecomodding?
Welcome to EcoModder.com, an automotive community where performance is judged by fuel economy rather than power and speed. EcoModders employ a combination of vehicle mods, driving techniques, and common sense to squeeze every penny out of the pumps. Reasons for becoming a member range from the economical to the ecological. More info about where EcoModding came from.

Commercially produced aerodynamic pickup bed cap

Brett Herndon is a genuine craftsman who has combined his skill in clay modeling with his knowledge of aerodynamics to produce a professional quality aerodynamic truck cap which will literally pay for itself in gas savings.
