lol ... Ok. Here is a picture taken when they were on their way to deliver the truck to me.
The day after I bought it I put about 400 miles on it on a trip to watch my grandson play soccer. The trip was in a cold, drizzly rain the whole way. Total miles per gallon over the length of the trip was about 30.6 mpg. That was traveling 75-80 mph on the interstate and about 30 miles of in-town driving.

Let me get the weather to cooperate and get the truck sparkly and I'll be glad to provide more pictures!

Beautiful truck, great mpg. That was a good shakedown cruise, did you identify any issues at all?

The truck was fantastic on the road. There was only one thing that surprised me ... on the Interstate going into the wind, I noticed more wind noise from the moon roofs than I would have expected. It was coming from the rear pane. It wasn't very loud, but the truck is so quiet it kind of surprised me to hear the wind noise. I closed the cover to the moon roofs and the noise became non-existent. Very quiet. I'm not sure if there just will be some wind noise with a moon roof, or if I need to get it checked, or if I'm just being too picky since the truck was so quiet and obviously well-built. We'll see.

Im betting on the shark fin bring the noise now. Before, the low-profile antenna was a mere bump in the air flow. Now a rigid sail exists.

Ahh ... didn't think about that. That very well may be the issue. At least it goes away when I close the cover.

Great to hear the positive feedback. I think Five Start Tuning has some tunes out for this platform. Not sure if that is who you were referring to with the SCT #'s or if that was just a stock SCT programmer.
