I got it back 2/16 but it goes back in the body shop this morning to have the bumpers repainted as I found issues I wasn't happy with.

twov8sandat4 is starting off with a positive reputation.
I got the running board lights working again. Now I can pick on my wife that my lowly EX has running board lights and her Escalade doesn't

I got 8.7 mpg on my last tank, I think that's the best I've ever gotten. One of the perks of moving out of the city I guess.

Oh man, I'm jealous. Maybe if I fix the headers I'll get closer.

desperado_18_2000 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Replaced a bent driveshaft flange, and fitted new Spicer 1410 joints. This helped to sort out a driveline vibration I have. Didn't completely fix it, but it is a step in the right direction. Going to go fill er up in the AM and see if I can get better than the 11.1 MPG I got this past tank.

Swapped out some old and tired batteries for a set of Interstates from Costco. Woke up the EX after it was left unattended for about 10 days. Had some trouble keeping that engine running. Might be facing a fuel related issue. Will be monitoring as the week progresses. The Jeep is in surgery. So, the EX needs to stay running to keep bringing parts and tools to get the Jeep back on the road.

after mostly 10-10.5mpg all winter long with my 70/30 mix of interstate/city I was pretty darn happy. finding e0 gas helped a lot too, but the cost vs mpg loss on e10 makes it about a wash i think.

Drove mine. Always nice to start the season with a "free" tank of gas. The other winter garage queen should be out on the road early next week. Spring is here!

Installed my PHP hydra chip today (1-daily light, 2-high idle, 3-heavy tow, 4-medium tow, 5-economy, 6-street shredder) . Oil, oil filter, fuel filter, air filter and oil bypass filter. I'll be on the road for two months in TN. Lot's of towing and driving.

Very surprised by the "performance" of my economy tune. Higher RPM and firmer shift points. The daily light seems a bit peppier than stock too. Mileage increase observed on my lie-o-meter. I'll update after my towing my trailers and a few tanks of fuel.

You can't go wrong with MB State Park and Huntington Beach State Park, we like both of them.
