Starting major mods on my truck

I have been lurking this site for a long time and was a member a while back but my accound dissapered some how. At any rate, since then I have gotten a scan guage at last and have gone from 24mpg average to 26.5 average as a restul!

I have gotten started with under bumper gap pan and I do have noticeable gains from that. I want to extend that to full pan eventually.

I am also working on an automatic grill shutter. I have a working prototype right now that I am runing test runs with. Since the summers here run well over 100, a full time grill block seems too risky, at least in the summer. I am still tweaking it to shut consitantly at the desired time. When I have it running properly, I will post up some pictures!

Looks like you'll need 10 posts for it to work though.
