Build Thread:
Current Mods: *Vehicle mods:*
~ Ultragauge,
~ Roof rack removed,
~ Right mirror removed,
~ well maintained,
~ Semi WAI (Warm Air Intake),
~ tires at 40 PSI (36 psi sidewall max),
~ synthetic engine oil (0-30),
~ synthetic differential and transfer case oil,
~ front to middle, belly pan,

*Driving techniques:*
(0nly done when N0T on the route. I drive inefficiently when I'm delivering.)
~ Occasionally P&G (coasting in N, not EOC),
~ Occasionally coasting to stops, (Not fully)

Planned Mods: ~ Rear wheel skirts back on

Things I have planned at this point, aren't necessarily for economy. BUT I WILL be working more on aerodynamics in the future.
