Oh Fx, lose the fender flares, i'm sure that could help cut down on aero.
Looks like an edge but doubt it has much edge left.. and I plan to get rid of the flares..

I think an aerocap for the bed would be the most beneficial addition...I wonder why the rocket ranger didn't use one? All the other mods seem worthwhile (except the V8...).

So a level truck is best? no rake?

I might make an aerocap during the summer, looks simple enough..
