I'm KC2EBM but haven't fired up a radio in years. Thought about rigging something up when I bought the F350 but due to garage heights I just never found a good solution.

My 350 4x4 crew cab long bed with heavy service suspension and 4.10s with the stock tires got nearly 15 consistently (whole tank averages). I'm sure a much lighter regular cab 2wd that doesn't have...
